UM Registrar Retires, 
Secretary Resigns 



Two of UMass' top administra- 
tors will be leaving their posts, 
it was announced over the sum- 
mer. Registrar Marshall O. 
I-anphear will retire in Novem- 
ber, while Secretary of the Uni- 
versity John Ryan is already on 
his way to Arizona State Univer- 
sity where he will assume the 
positon of Vice-President and 
Professor of Political Science. 

IN HIS NEW POST at Ari- 
zona State University, Dr. Ryan 
will be responsible to the presi- 
dent for administration aspects 
of the University's academic, 
student affairs, extension and re- 
search programs as well as other 
areas. 



UMass President John W. Le- 
derle accepted the 34-year-old 
educator's resignation "with 
great reluctance and regret." 

The president praised Dr. 
Ryan for 'his substantial con- 
tribution to the University's pro- 
gram and for the high promise 
he has shown for even greater 
contributions in the future." 

LEDERLE SAID THAT "The 
Arizona State University posi- 
tion was too good an opportunity 
for Dr. Ryan to turn down. We 
wish him our very best for out- 
standing success in the higher 
post he has accepted at Arizona 
State."

New Traffic Rules 
Will Relieve Chaos 



Students returning to the Uni- 
versity were mildly shocked to 
find it a proliferation of signs. 
The signs state where one can 
park, where one cannot park, as 
well as where one can have his 
car towed. The signs are part of 
the new traffic rules and regula- 
tions. The program, under super- 



vision of former Air Science pro- 
fessor Col. John Marchant, hopes 
to bring order out of the once 
chaotic conditions on campus. 

By far the most controversial 
section of the new rules is that 
which provides for a $3 fee to 
register a car. Students, faculty, 
and staff have all registered

SEPTEMBER IMS— The new high rise dorms

Van Meter House which has been transformed

The added numbers of UMass 
students, combined with the in- 
complete state of the new six- 
story dormitories on Van Meter 
hill at the north end of the cam- 
pus, has resulted in what many 
observers claim is the most 
crowded state the University has 
ever seen. 

Roughly one quarter of the 



rooms on campus are being oc- 
cupied above their intended cap- 
acity. 

The number of undergraduates 
commuting to campus this year 
has jumped to over 900, an in- 
crease of at least 350 over last 
year's figure. 

This means that more than 
500 graduate and undergraduate 



UMass students are looking for 
apartments and rooms in Am- 
herst, Hadley, Northampton, 
Sunderland, Deerfield, and other 
nearby towns. 

The University Housing office 
earlier issued an appeal to house- 
holders in the area, who have 
room for students. The "need for

Campus Pond Receives Tenants 



by OLEII FAWLIK '6ft 

Incoming students this semes- 
ter are being welcomed back 
with something new and unique 
in UMass history — swans and 
ducks in the campus pond. 

Early in August several cyg- 
nets and ducks were placed in 
the University pond on a trial 
basis. A shelter was erected on 
the island and the birds' wings 
were clipped to prevent them 
from flying away. The new- 
comers adapted quickly to their 
environment and soon a few 
more birds were added. Present- 
ly there are 4 swans and 14 
ducks in the pond. 

The birds have been Intro- 
duced to the campus for 2 pri- 
mary reasons. First of all, they 
provide efficient weed control, re- 
placing the more expensive and 
dangerous method of eliminating 
weeds through use of harmful 
chemicals. Secondly, the birds 
are of aesthetic value, as anyone 
who has observed these graceful 
creatures go about their daily 
existence can testify. Moreover, 
the swans will become even more 
beautiful as winter approaches, 
for the color of their plumage 
will change from a light brown 




THE TWO NEWEST members of the I'M campus greet each other. 



to a snow white. 

The administration hopes that 
the student body will appreciate 
the birds and not unduly dis- 
turb them. Tampering with the 
swans could prove quite danger- 
ous, for their large wings are 
capable of inflicting severe In- 
jury, even to the extent of break- 
ing an arm. 

As for any possibility of the 
birds interfering with skating 



activity, students need not wor- 
ry, for in all probability the 
swans and ducks will be removed 
for the winter or confined to a 
small area of the pond. 

The introduction of the birds 
to the University pond will un- 
doubtedly prove a worthwhile ef- 
fort and it will be no surprise 
should these newcomers becom 
as much a symbol of UMass i ; 
our renowned Metawampee. 



THE MASSACHUSETTS COLLEGIAN, MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 16, 19«8 



COLLEGIAN Editorial Page 

For Freshmen Only 



YOU 

Freshmen . . . advice. These words have too much in 
common. For it is what the senior in high school hears the 
moment he is accepted at college. Now that you are begin- 
ning the experience so long awaited there is no advice 
worth while except that which you have delved out yourself. 
If you're not apprehensive about what lies ahead of you 
you shouldn't be here. The drop out statistics of freshman 
classes entering the University of Massachusetts shows 
that incoming students weren't apprehensive enough— that 
is, not enough to prepare themselves for the experience 
which lies ahead. It's a challenge. It's important. 

The University it a vast reservoir. We, iff students, each of 
us a minute part of its functioning, are brought to it by the ad- 
ministration and faculty. There are no means for us to tap this 
reservoir except through an outlet we forgo ourselves. It remains 
closed unless we ourselves bid. And yet the potential openings 
are innumerable. You have to do it yourself. No one is going to 
help you. You can saunter through four years, just getting by, 
not caring about becoming creative or educated. Or you really 
don't have to bother yourself to learn how to relate to people. 

One does not have to attain all A's to get the most out 
of the University. The Reservoir consists of speakers, 
courses, extracurricular groups, interests, shows, drama. 
The initiative has to come from within you. If it doesn't 
arise from there it won't be at ali. 

Are you bored? Are these remarks joining countless 
others you've heard? Probably the same number of stu- 
dents will have to leave school whether it was written or 
not. Well it has to be said. College is serious business. Not 
because of what it can get you materially, but what you 
can do for yourself. Part of the problem is that some of 
you don't care enough about yourselves. Thus helping your- 
self has no value. 

You will never again have so many opportunities and 
resources at your disposal. For the next four years you 
will live like gentlemen and ladies of the eighteenth and 
nineteenth century, with professors, musicians, pools, ten- 
nis courts, stables. I could go on, but I won't. It's your four 

years. Make of them what you want.

The Physotomous Phthriasis 

by SAM GORVINE 

This is a column as new to the COLLEGIAN as I am. 
It will, I hope, be written in the humble realization that 
nine out of ten people read the COLLEGIAN either at sup- 
per or in the w.c. (If you eat in a University dining hall 
there's no difference.) I will not trouble you with interna- 
tional politics, which I don't understand, or the publish or 
perish crisis which bores me as much as it does you. 

I am biased, predjudiced, and my sources of informa- 
tion are no better than yours. So, with all this off my chest, 
perhaps I can put in this column a few things that you will 
find of passing interest over your daily portion of anony- 
mous Commons "meat." 

A WORD TO THE CLASS OF '67 

Look around you freshman. (If you are reading this 
in the w.c. don't bother.) If you can see a hundred beanies 
bobbing jauntily about, or bent intently over supper, or 
perched sadly above faces expressionless with loneliness, 
imagine fifty-one of them gone. When the year stamped on 
your hat rolls around, that's the way it will be. 

Chances are you won't be here either. Why not? Not 
because you haven't got the smarts, kiddo. If you got in 
here, the experts say you should leave with that all-impor- 
tant piece of parchment. 

But why won't you ? Because maybe you hate your old 
man who made you go to college and boy are you gonna fix 
him. Or mavbe you're gonna prove how smart you are by 
getting good marks without studying. Or if you're really 
messed up and don't think much of yourself, you can prove 
it every night with cards, beer, or broads. Let me tell you, 
man, there are a lotta roads here and most of them lead 
right the hell out. 

Of the forty-nine left, how many get an education? 
No, the sheepskin doesn't mean you got an education; it 
just means that you took a specified number and distribu- 
tion of courses from people who may or may not have 
known what they were talking about. 

You can walk off that graduation platform »n educated man 
or a boy In a funny hat. The chances of being somewhere in the 
middle are slim hero because we havo some excellent depart-

Within Ourselves 

Not in the clamor of the 
crowded street, not in the 
shouts and plaudits of the 
throng, but in ourselves, are 
triumph and defeat. 

—The Poets 

Embarking upon a new 
venture is often a difficult 
and frightening experience, 
especially when this venture 
encompasses the expecta- 
tions within ourselves and 
those who are meaningful to 
us. Yet, no matter what the 
expectations, the ultimate 
solution lies within our- 
selves. At our age, the love 
of pleasures is not unbecom- 
ing. The danger however is 
setting ourselves in erron- 
eous pursuit and falling vic- 
tim to profligate pleasure. 
Pleasure cannot be the busi- 
ness of a man of sense. It is 
on the other hand his re- 
lief and reward. 

Accompl i s h m e n t and 
knowledge are the watch- 
words of our society, our 
educational system, and our 
future. Upon first arriving 
on the college scene, it is al- 
together too easy for the 
Freshman to lose cite of his 
goals. The University pro- 
vides the medium in which 
a Freshman might attain 
pleasures and book-knowl- 
edge. 

This is indeed important. 
Yet, of eevn greater signifi- 
cance is the process which 
has its beginning at this 
period in the life of a Fresh- 
man and continues in the 
hope of fruition — maturity. 
Recognition of the feelings 
of others; how to cope with 
ones own feelings; how to 
relate with others with sen- 
sitivity ; how to perceive and 
love; all of this growth can 
begin now if the Freshman 
is always extraordinarily 
aware of this metamorpho- 
sis in his life. This first year 
is a year of choice. It is a 
year in which decisions bad- 
ly made will echo through- 
out four college years. These 
coming years might act as 
a foundation or a detriment. 
Act with moderation and 
forethought. Success is won 
only by reason. Good luck to 
you all.

TOWN AND CAMPUS, 
A NEW LOOK 

A cursory examination of 
the relationship between ed- 
ucational institutions and 
the towns in which they're 
located, reveals that a strand 
of tension has more than 
once existed between them. 
Medieval accounts speak of 
dirk carying students fight- 
ing club carrying townspeo- 
ple. Today, if the relation-

1 Have Walked This Way Before 

by JOHN B. CHILDS 

"I have walked this way before," said the voice of The 
Revolution. "I have walked hard on the streets of Paris 
and I have glided softly through the minds of many men, 
of Socrates, Locke, Juarez." 

So it was that the voice of The Revolution spoke. Some heard 
and some did not hear. Some pulled out their calculators and put 
the recent March On Washington on a glass slide. "What was the 
percentage of its effectiveness?" they said. "How much of this 
did it do? How much of that did it do?" 

The voice of The Revolution went unhindered. "I have 
walked hard" it said. "And I have glided softly." The March 
on Washington glided softly. It flowed as a stream in many 
minds of many men. Can one measure such a flow? 

The March On Washington came and went. The Halls of 
Congress did not come tumbling down before it. The racial hatred 
still makes the news headlines. But the Voice has been heard 
once again, more strongly, more powerfully. 

It was a day of the soft gliding for the Voice of the 
Revolution. The Revolution ... it has walked in more than 
one way over the many thousand years. Despise it not for 
its different forms. 

Letters To The Editor 

Letters to the Editor are wel- 
come at anytime. They can be 
concerned with every conceivable 
topic. They can be reasonably 
objective, clear, concise. They 
can be muddled, confused, un- 
reasonably subjective. They can 
have a purpose. They can be 
meaningless. They can be praise 
or a plain gripe. They are all 
welcome. 



Certain rules have to be ob- 
served. 

(1) They have to be signed 

(2) They should be type- 
written. 

(3) They should be left in the 
Editorial Editor's desk. Not all 
will be published. The Editor 
reserves the right to discard any 
letters. 



(This is. the first of many traditional letters about our 
UMass pathways.) 

To the Editor: 

I been on this here campus for nigh on f three years, and 
that's long enough, sonny, to have seen a certain stretch of side- 
walk done, and redone, only to be undone again. The pathway 
in concern runs (or ran) between the Public Health Building and 
Morrill Science Center— the main artery from the dorms on the 
hill to the center of campus. Others might also remember the 
dozen odd times that this area was paved and landscaped, 
patched for cave-ins and patched at the breaks in the poor 
patches. Now the entire area is blocked off and again dug up, this 
time for the new wing to Morrill. 

With no alternate path provided for this important 
point, students are finding things difficult. But let's forgive 
and forget what once more proved to be wastefulness and 
lack of foresight in campus planning. Let's also pray for 
quick action to alleviate the problem. Temporary tar paths 
should be mapped out, perhaps down the hill to the right 
front of the Pub. Health Bldg. If such walks are not sup- 
plied, the inevitable muddy gorge will be hacked in the 
nearby lawns. The Halls of Morrill and Pub. Health will 
be flooded by students looking for convenient routes. And 
the Editorial Editor can get more letters like this complain- 
ing about the mess!

Dr. Harlow 
Conducts 
UCS Study 

A University of Massachusetts 
educator, Dr. Dana E. Harlow, 
has been granted an eighteen- 
month leave of absence to serve 
as a research consultant with the 
United Community Services of 
Metropolitan Boston. 

Dr. Harlow, an assistant pro- 
fessor of recreation, will direct 
a study of the ten-year capital 
outlay needs of the UCS's indoor 
and outdoor recreation facilities. 

According to UCS president 
Theodore Chase, the ten-year 
projected survey "is the first 
long-range socio-economic facili- 
ty study related to recreational 
research to be done by communi- 
ty social and welfare services." 

The survey will encompass the 
recreational needs of the two and 
one-half million people currently 
served by the UCS in the metro- 
politan Boston area. 

Special attention will be paid 
in the study to recreation ad- 
ministration, supervision and pro- 
gram development, and to the ac- 
quisition of new property and 
construction of new facilities.

Sigma, held at the University 
of Maryland, the Women's Serv- 
ice Organization of UMass. was 
installed as Alpha Theta Chap- 
ter of the national service soror-

munity affairs, GGS emphasizes 



the ideals of service, friendship, 
and equality, and is open to all 
University women. The projects 
they undertake are many and 
varied; already this year they 
have co-sponsored the Book Ex- 
change and helped with the 
President's reception for fresh- 
men and a reception for foreign 
students. Other plans for this 
year include running an infor-

Girls Wanted 
For UMass 
Angel Flight 

All interested girls are en- 
couraged to attend an organiza- 
tional meeting of the Angel 
Flight, Tuesday. September 17. 
at 7 p.m. in the Nantucket Room 
of the Student Union. 

The Angel Flights, a national 
organiation of campus coeds, is 
affiliated with the Arnold Air 
Society, a professional honorary 
service organization of advanced 
AFROTC cadets. There are 
Angel Flights at many colleges 
throughout the United States, 
including Boston University. 

Usually the group performs 
as a drill team, but its primary 
function is social. Members will 
serve as hostesses for the ROTC 
Detachment when visiting digni- 
taries are on campus, sponsor 
social events, and guide public 
relations in regard to women's 
careers in the Air Force. The 
majority of these functions will 
be done in close conjunction with 
the Arnold Air Society. 

Those interested in forming an 
Angel Flight are welcome at this 
meeting. Three representatives 
of the Arnold Air Society will be 
present to lead an informal dis- 
cussion and to answer any ques- 
tions which may arise. We hope 
tions which may arise.

student housing is urgent," the 
appeal stated. 

The high-rise dormitories, ori- 
ginally slated for completion on 
September 1 of this year, will 
not open until next September or 
later. Since beginning construc- 
tion, the M. J. Walsh Co., the 
prime contractor, has been 
plagued with delays. 

. . . Might Mean Trouble? 

The administration's decision 
to house women students In Van 
Meter, formerly a men's dormi- 
tory, has been questioned by 
many in light of trouble result- 
ing from a similar move. Last 
year when women students were 
moved into Brooks, previously a 
male residence hall, the moves 
were made so that all women 
students could be housed on- 
campus and only men need move 
off. 

Brooks was last year the scene 
of several disturbances which oc- 
casioned action by campus and 
state police as well as by UM ad- 
ministration.

Better Sales- 
Better Buys 
At APO Exchange 

All students benefit from the 
Book Exchange sponsored by 
GSS • APO in the Hampden- 
Franklin Room. Freshmen can 
buy used books at reasonably 
low rates; upperclaismen and 
graduate students can easily buy 
and sell books in one trip. 

If you bring books to sell, there 
is a simple form to fill out for 
each book which insures return 
of the book if it is not sold. 
Please be sure to save your re- 
ceipt; otherwise, your books will 
become the property of the Book 
Exchange. 

Included in the price of each 
book selling for over one dollar 
is a ten-cent charge to cover 
costs of publicity and supplies. 
Books under a dollar have a five- 
cent change. 

Books will be sold through 
Thursday, the 19th, and must be 
picked up Thursday and Friday. 

Lanphear ... 

(Continued from page 1) 

REGISTRAR LANPHEAR, a 

living legend to 16,000 alumni 
and 8,700 students at the Uni- 
versity of Massachusetts, will 
retire in November after 42 years 
as University Registrar. 

A graduate of the University 
in 1918, Registrar Lanphear has 
devoted his life to selecting from 
all applicants those young men 
and women who would profit 
most from a University educa- 
tion. 

DURING HIS YEARS as chief 
admissions officer, he has seen 
the University grow from Mas- 
sachusetts Agricultural College 
with fewer than 500 students, to 
the state University with more 
than 8,700 students. He has 
served under six presidents. 

In announcing the Registrar's 
retirement, UMass President 
John W. Lederle said, "Marshall 
Lanphear is, and has been for 
many years, a vital force in the 
University's growth. I know I 
speak for the thousands of alum- 
ni, students, faculty and friends 
of the University, when I say 
that we are losing one of the 
great men in the University's 
100-year history. An outstanding 
educator, Registrar Lanphear has 
shown many times in recent 
years the rare quality of flexi- 
opment of a rapidly growing uni- 
opment of a rapidly growth uni- 
versity. We will miss his wisdom, 
counsel and humor." 

DESPITE THE MANY 

changes in admissions proce- 
dures, including computer han- 
dling of much of the statistical 
material, Registrar Lanphear 
continues to use the personal ap- 
proach, interviewing many of the 
applicants himself. 

Dr. William D. Tunis, present 
director of the University of 
Massachusetts' Waltham Field 
Station, has been appointed 
Lanphear's successor, with the 
new title of University Dean of 
Admissions and Records.

Frats, Administration 
Pledge Co-operation 



by LEO 8TANLAKE 

Fraternity officers and mem- 
bers of Interfraternity Council 
were urged to draw up a code 
of standards by which they may 
both "judge themselves and be 
Judged by others." The discussion 
came during a meeting with 
Dean of Students William Field 
last Wednesday evening. Field 
told those assembled that frater- 
nities "must accept the fact that 
there are other people in the 
world." 

Health and sanitation within 
the houses will be greatly em- 
phasized as well as a system of 
monthly inspections to be ad- 
ministered jointly by the Office 
of the Dean of Men and by the 



fraternities. Representing the 
Dean's office will be William 
Branard, assistant to the Dean. 
Extensive clean-up and repair 
operations will have to be under- 
taken by some of the houses be- 
fore they will be up to accept- 
able standard, Field said. 

He further stated that unless 
the fraternities can provide ade- 
quate and responsible supervi- 
sion during mid-semester break 
and senior week, the houses will 
have to be closed at these times. 

The meeting ended on the 
theme of increased co-operation 
between the fraternities and the 
administration.

University 
To Offer 
Ed. Degree 

The University will offer a 
doctorate in Education starting 
in the fall semester of 1963, it 
was announced today by Dr. 
Edward C. Moore, Dean of the 
Graduate School. 

The University is the first 
public institution in Massachu- 
setts to offer a doctorate in 
education. It is expected that the 
state university's new program 
will help to fulfill the increasing 
need for scholarly teachers and 
trained researchers in education. 

The Ed.D. program will help 
to meet the special educational 
need for teachers and other 
school personnel who are not 
only strong in their special field, 
but are also proficient in the use 
of statistics and modern com- 
puter equipment. 

Requirements for the Ed.D. 
program will be the same as for 
the University's Ph.D. program 
except that the customary for- 
eign language requirement will 
be replaced by two specialized 
research techniques. 

According to Dean Moore, 
"The new School of Education 
building and the attached 
Mark's Meadow Laboratory 
School offer the finest facilities 
for graduate research in the 
country." The Mark's Meadow 
School has an overhead observa- 
tion corridor that permits obser- 
vation of the two classes in each 
of the six grades. The closed

Six Thousand Visitors Cram 
Campus For AIBS Meeting 



MORE THAN 4,000 scientists 
from all parts of the United 
States converged on the town of 
Amherst late last month to at- 
tend the 15th annual meeting of 
the American Institute of Bio- 
logical Sciences (AIBS) at the 
University of Massachusetts. 

The week-long series of meet- 
ings was held August 25-30. Since 
many of the scientists brought 
their families, there were over 
6,000 visitors to the UMass cam- 
pus and the town of Amherst. 

AIBS is composed of jcr> -tars 
and researchers connected with 
educational institutions, indus- 
trial organizations, and govern- 
mental agencies. AIBS encom- 
passes many separate specialized 
biological, horticultural, and 
pharmaceutical associations. 

DURING AIBS MEETINGS, 

member societies held symposia 
and meetings for the presenta- 
tion of research papers. 

As in the past, many of * .ese 
research papers disclosed signi- 
ficant scientific findings. An ex- 
hibition by manufacturers of 
professional equipment and by 
publishers of scientific texts was 



also staged during 
ence. 



the confer- 



UMasa was selected to host 
the 1963 gathering because of its 
resources — physical facilities, re- 
search programs, and general 
academic setting. Much of the 
AIBS activity was centered about 
the large Justin Morrill Science 
Center. 

Not so long ago, people 
thought that college towns ex- 
isted in an extreme state of las- 
situde during the summer 
months, calmly awaiting the 
next flood of expectant young 
scholars. 

Extended summer sessions and 
educational conferences on many 
campuses have tended to dispel 
that idea during the last few 
years. The University of Mas- 
sachusetts is no exception. 

Every large classroom, audi- 
torium and laboratory has been 
in constant use during the four- 
day session to accommodate the 
24 societies for the presentation 
of nearly 2,000 research papers.

The jaycee promotion is in- 
tended to introduce University 
students to Amherst merchants 
by offering goods and services at 
reduced prices ranging to 100 
percent. 

Representative values Include 
these: 

A local pizza house Is offering 
a second order of any pizza on 
the list at half-price. 

A paint merchant Is offering 
two for the price of one in his 
entire art supply line. A camera 
shop has the same arrangement. 

Two restaurants are offering a 
second meal for half-price. 

All clothing, shoe, drug, book 
and stationery stores are in- 
volved as well as a record shop, 
laundry, dry cleaners, tobacco 
shop, hardware store, furniture 
store, printing shop and two gas 
stations. 

Jaycee chairman George Como 
has termed the offer "something 
of real value to the students. In 
this manner we hope to give the 
student a financial lift, and at the 
same time introduce the student 
to local merchants." 

Como said the jaycees have 
worked two months to plan use- 
ful values for students with the 
merchants. He said all mer- 
chants involved have signed con- 
tracts, and that all cost and risk 
is being borne by the organiza- 
tion. 

Como's assistant Jake Bishop 
praised local merchants and ex- 
plained: "With education being 
the main industry, we thinl it 
makes sense to attract as much 
student business as possible to 
our town. It is particularly im- 
portant since free student bus 
service is no longer available." 

Jaycee president Everett rtb- 
sarick said the project is aimed 
at bettering "town-gown" rela- 
tions. 

Adelphia is receiving an agents 
fee of $1 per sale to finance 
Adelphian projects.

THE MASSACHUSETTS COLLEGIAN, MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 16, IMS 



New Book Explores 
Abolitionist Movement 



The flery words which sparked 
America's bloody Civil War are 
the subject of a new book, "The 
Abolitionists," written by Dr. 
Louis Ruchames, a Northamp- 
ton, Mass. historian and chap- 
lain to Jewish students at the 
University, Smith and Amherst 
Colleges. 

The collection of anti-slavery 
tracts and essays by leaders of 
the abolition movement was re- 
cently published by G. P. Put- 
nam's Sons, New York, and con- 
tains an introductory essay and 
informative editorial notes by 
Dr. Ruchames relating to the 
timing and significance of the 
nineteenth century papers. 

Noted American historians who 
have reviewed the book indicate 
that Dr. Ruchames' selection of 
materials brings together anti- 
slavery documents, particularly 
those published prior to the 
1850's, which have previously 
been difficult for scholars to find 
and analyze.

University 
Receives Estate 
For Research 

Early this summer, the Univer- 
sity was given the 90 acre 
Stephen Peabody estate at 
Quaise Point on Nantucket Har- 
bor. 

The property, valued at over 
$100,000 will be used for a new 
research center in marine biology 
and related fields. Two houses — 
one to be used as a dormitory, 
the other as a headquarters — 
and 2 garages, are provided. 

The unique location and cli- 
matic advantages of the property 
will aid the new center as a ma- 
jor contributor in science and 
the Massachusetts economy, with 
anticipated support from the 
Federal government. 

The estate is a gift of the Nina 
Haven Charitable Foundation 
which was under Mr. Peabody's 
direction until his death, in 1962,

leaf Whittier are among the fa-

ords the zeal of the abolition- 
ists, but also emphasizes the or- 
ganizational difficulties the re- 
formers encountered in develop- 
ing their movement into a na- 
tional force. 

"The Abolitionists" is Dr. Ru- 
chames' second major volume on 
anti-slavery activity preceding 
the Civil War. In 1960 he served 
as editor of "A John Brown 
Reader," a book about the con- 
troversial leader who was hanged 
for his attack on Harper's Ferry 
in 1859. 

A graduate of City College of 
New York and the Jewish Insti- 
tute of Religion, Dr. Ruchames 
holds a Ph.D. degree in sociology 
from Columbia University. He 
has contributed many articles to 
journals of history, and his first 
book, "Race, Jobs, and Politics: 
The Story of The F.E.P.C." was 
published by the Columbia Uni- 
versity Press in 1953. 

Dr. Ruchames was appointed 
director of B'nai B'rith Hillel 
Foundations at the University of 
Massachusetts, Smith and Am- 
herst Colleges in 1944, and has 
served as visiting lecturer in the 
department of history at Smith 
College. 



Dr. Jones 
To Run Ed. 
Grad School 

Dr. Clifford V. Jones, former 
superintendent of schools in Pa- 
saic, New Jersey, has been ap- 
pointed professor of education 
at the University, President John 
W. Lederle announced recently. 

An experienced teacher at both 
the university and secondary 
school levels, Dr. Jones will as- 
sist Dr. Albert W. Purvis, Dean 
of the UMass School of Educa- 
tion, in the coordination of a 
new program leading to the doc- 
torate in school administration. 

Dr. Jones, a former school 
principal, has also served as su- 
perintendent of school systems 
in New York and Pennsylvania 
communities. As a. member of the 
graduate faculty of UMass, he 
will be associated with the teach- 
er internship program. This pro- 
vides teaching experience for stu- 
dents at the School of Education 
through regular assignments 
with school systems throughout 
the state. 

Dr. Jones graduated from Ed- 
inboro (Pa.) State College and 
received his Master's degree at 
the University of Pittsburgh. Af- 
ter receiving his doctorate in 
school administration at Colum- 
bia University, he taught grad- 
uate courses in educational ad- 
ministration for several sessions 
at the University of Pittsburgh. 



Engineers Start School 
Early in Experiment 



Nearly 90 University of Mass- 
achusetts freshmen received a 
two-week head start on their for- 
midable four-year journey to- 
ward an engineering degree Sun- 
day, August 25, to Friday, Sep- 
tember 6, in an experimental 
program sponsored by the Uni- 
versity's school of engineering. 

The students attended daily 
classes in mathematics and the 
history of engineering and tock 
part in an engineering orienta- 
tion program. All participant 
were volunteers and tuition was 
free. 

Supported by research grants 
from the University and the 

Charles F. Kettering Foundation, 
the experiment was directed by 
Dr. Edward J. Rising. The pro- 
gram, he said, is an attempt to 
help fill society's need for engin- 



eers by determining the kinds of 
academic preparation and stu- 
dent motivation which would en- 
able more students to success- 
fully complete the difficult en- 
gineering degree requirements. 

Dr. Rising, an associate pro- 
fessor of industrial engineering 
at UMass, recently announced 
the first report on the program, 
which was inaugurated last sum- 
mer with an enrollment of 41 
volunteers. Their records during 
the academic year, he reports, 
indicate that nearly 25 percent 
more of them were successful 
with introductory engineering 
mathematics, than students of 
similar academic backgrounds 
who rii<! not take part in the 
experiment.

IFC To Hold 
Meetings 
For Frosh 

The Inter Fraternity Council 
will sponsor a number of meet- 
ings to be held in all dormitor- 
ies on Tuesday evening, Septem- 
ber 17 at 7:30. Members of the 
I.F.C. will explain the fraternity 
system to all interested fresh- 
men. 

The informal discussions will 
cover both the social programs 
of the fraternities and the aca- 
demic side of Greek life (the fra- 
ternity cumulative average is 
consistently higher than the 
overall men's average). 

Freshmen will find that these 
discussions will help him to form

work hard to live up to the 
teams of the last few years. In 
the past three years the Redmen 
have won the Yankee Conference 
Cross-Country championships all 
three years, as well as winning 
the New England Championship 
in 1961. In 1960 and 62 the team 
took second place. Its duel meet 
record is an amazing 21 and 4. 

For a team that lost five of its 
top seven runners through grad- 
uation to continue compiling a 
record equal to the past few 
years seems to be wishful think- 
ing. Yet barring injuries, the 
Redmen could well compile an 
undefeated season for the first 
time, as well as winning the 
Yan Con Championships again, 
and place in the top three in the 
New England Championships. 



BOB "DIGGER" BROUILLET 

again will be the number 1 man 
for UMass. In the past three 
years "Digger" has established 
himself as the greatest distance 
runner ever seen at UMass, and 
this year it appears he's going 
to keep on adding to his list of 
records. He holds several course 
records, and has won the Yankee 
Conference Championships for 
the last two years. 

It takes seven men to make a 
cross-country team though, and 
it's the other six boys who will 
make or break the Redmen this 
year. Tom Panke and Bob Ram- 
sey, both juniors, are the only 
returning varsity men. 

MOVING UP as sophomores 



are a group of youngsters who 
show great promise, Bob Molvar 
and Dave Sullivan will head the 
contingent. Molvar broke Brouil- 
lets freshman records, and ap- 
pears to be headed for another 
great season. Sullivan always 
was right behind Molvar. Bob 
Larson, Don Campfield and Al 
McPhpil will be expected to lend 
strong support. McPhail, along 
the senior Gene Colburn and jun- 
ior Bill Young, are question 
marks. These boys haven't com- 
peted in over a year. 
" If they live up to their poten- 
tial, though, the boys will be an 
asset to the team. So, with a 
little luck, Coach Footrick could 
again turn out a team equai to 
any of his great ones in the past, 
if not his greatest team.

In doing so the Redmen will be 
out to begin improving on the 
6-3 record that their 1962 pre- 
decessors compiled during last 
fall's grid campaign. 

The Maine game also repre- 
sents the first taste of Yankee 
Conference competition for 
Fusia's eleven. For ten past two 
seasons for Conference champ- 
ionship has strangely eluded the 
grasp of UMass. On both occa-

sions a field goal in the season's 
finale with New Hampshire has 
kept the Conference trophy from 
the Redmen trophy case. 

From the look of the material 
at hand the Redmen appear to 
have an excellent shot at the 
title and one of their best sea- 
sons ever. Many grid mentors 
lament every year over the grad- 
uation of their talent. Vic Fusia 
is blessed this season with a 
good amount of returning experi- 
ence at almost every position. 
For the first time in many a sea- 
son reliable depth will be among 
the valuable assests in the Red- 
men gridiron picture.

The end, tackle, guard and 
quarterback positions are the 
deepest in returning lettermen. 
Roger DeMinico (190), Dick 
Bourdelais (205), John Hudson 
(190) and Jim Fassell (180) are 
the four lettermen at the end 
spots. Up from last year's Frosh 
squad are two talented ends, Bob 
Meers (210) and Milt Morin 
(210), both of whom will see a 
good deal of starting assignments 
this year. 

The best fortified position on 
the UMass squad could be at 
tackle where five lettermen re- 
turn, co-captain Paul Graham 
(240), Bob Burke (225), Sam 
Tombarelli (220), Bruce Jordan 
(225) and Don Hagberg (220), 
all lettermen. Other tackle pro- 
spects are Junior Dick Kehoe and 
first year man Don Johnson. The 
guard spots boast three letter- 
men: Bob Tedoldi (215), Pete 
Pietz (210) and Tom Brophy 
(190). And more experience will 
polish the talents of Hal Ryder 
(200), Rod Brooks (200) and Ed 
Toner (210). 

Charlie Scialdone (212) repre- 
sents the only letterman at cen- 
ter this fall. Junior Joy Doyle 
(205) and Bernie Dallas (205), 
Jim Kuczynski (208), and Mike 
Scafti (205), all Sophs, are ready 
to back up Scialdone. 

The quarterback spot features 
Junior Jerry Whelchel (185). 
Whelchel was Fusia's number 
one signal caller last season as a 
Soph and more than filled the 
bill. His first season varsity per- 
formance was good enough to 
earn him all-Conference First 
Team rating at quarterback. 
Ready to lend a helping hand at 
signal calling will be Junior Jack 
Schroeder (210) and Soph Steve 
Trbovich (180). 

Two years ago halfbacks Fred 
Lewis (205) and Ken Palm (190) 
saw a lot of action in the UMass 
secondary. Last year their serv- 
ices were not available to the 
squad. This year they return, to 
the joy of Vic Fusia, due to the

loss of five lettermen from last 
year's team. Should Palm and 
Lewis perform as they did in '61 
the halfback slots will be reliable 
and sound. Added strength in the 
department is to come from let- 
terman Phil deRose (180) and 
Junior Joe Morris (175). Bob El- 
lis (190) and Dave Kelley (185f. 
both Sophomores are tabbed as 



good halfback prospects. 

UMass has two lettermen re- 
turning at fullback: Dick War- 
ren (190) and Mike Ross (218). 
Phil Vandersea (215), who sat 
out last season's campaign with 
injuries, has the equipment to 
step in and take over as fullback 
when needed.

Men's Judiciary 
In Need Of Justices 



Every democracy has a judi- 
ciary branch, the purpose of 
which is to enforce the laws of 
the particular society and to pro- 
tect the rights of its citizens. At 
the University, we have such a 
judicial department — the Men's 
Judiciary — with a lower court 
system known as the Area Ju- 
diciary. 

This Area Judiciary's purpose 
is to consider violations of dor- 
mitory and University regula- 
tions within the general dormi- 
tory area. The court consists of 



one representative from each 
dormitory, presided over by a 
member of Men's Judiciary. The 
term of appointment is for one 
year with the possibility of re- 
current terms. 

Guided by the member of Men's 
Judiciary in policy and proced- 
ure, the Area Judiciary has no 
restrictions placed on the correc- 
tive action which may be taken; 
but it is hoped that more physical 
rather than probation-type action 
will be used. Example — assisting

Music Department 
Creates Orchestra 




MR. RONALD STEELE 

Conductor of budding symphony orchestra. 



Although most are unaware 
of it, the beginning of a sym- 
phony orchestra has been or- 
ganized here at the University. 
The University Orchestra will 
begin its season with a rehears- 
al In Bartlett Auditorium to- 
night at 7:30. 

Ronald Steele, conductor of 
the group, stated that while a 
lack of capable string instru- 
ment players is forcing him to 
go off campus for new mem- 
bers, he feels sure thai quali- 
fied students at the University 
will step forward in the near 
future. 

Mr. Steele, a violinist and 
conductor, is a recent arrival at 
the University. A graduate of 



the University of Michigan, he 
is a former associate conductor 
of the Michigan Youth Orches- 
tra, a 150 piece group affiliated 
with the University. 

While it is presently primari- 
ly a string group, Mr. Steele 
plans formation of a syinphon- 
ette "with an eye toward forma- 
tion of a symphony orchestra." 

Present plans for the orches- 
tra Include the "Concerto Gros- 
so" by Ernest Bloch and the 
"Fantasia on a Theme" by 
Thomas Tallls." 

Mr. Steele has invited all stu- 
dents who have string experi- 
ence to come to tonight's re- 
hearsal. 



Old Redmen Band Sports 
New Look This Year 



by DAVE HARACZ '65 

No matter what the score at 
Saturday's, September 28, foot 
ball game against Harvard, 
UMass is certain to make an 
impression with what is cur- 
rently being named its "new" 
band. 

In addition to the traditional 
Metawampee with his feathered 
headdress and buckskins, will be 
Bruce Cutter, the new Drum 
Major, who will sport a new 
uniform reminiscent of the style 
of Midwestern schools. In addi- 
tion, the "new" band will pre- 
sent new steps and formations 
and some music written ex- 
pressly for the UMass March- 
ing Band. 

THE DRIVING FORCE be 
hind this metamorohpsis in the 
UMass band is John Jenkins, 
our new band director. Mr. Jen- 
kins, a product of Midwestern 
schools, seeks to introduce some 
of the spirit of the Midwest to 
the UMass campus through the 
band. 

Mr. Jenkins received his bach- 
elor's degree and his master's 
from the University of Michi- 
gan, where he played solo cor- 
onet with f he Michigan March- 
ing Band an worked with Dr. 
William D. Revelli, considered 
the foremost band director 
among America's colleges. Now 
working on a doctorate at the 
Uuiversity of Michigan, Mr. 
Jenkins has served as a second 
lieutenant in the U. S. army 
and as the music director of 
public schools in Ann Arbor and 
Brimley. Michigan, before ac- 
cepting his post here. 

He resides on Van Meter 
Drive in Amherst with his wife 
and daugher and will direct the 
UMass marching and concert 
bands and the brass ensemble. 
He will also give instruction in

To Be Held For Seniors 



few weeks. Arriving on August 
19, Mr. Jenkins made prepara- 
tions for the arrival of freshman 
band members on September 5 
and upperclassmen on the 8th. 
16-hour days and the combina- 
tion of a completely new form- 
at, veteran band members, and 
promising freshmen, all molded 
by Mr. Jinkins during the band 
camp, have indeed produced for 
UMass a "new" band. 



All senior men are urged to 
attend the two Placement group 
meetings which will be held to 
provide information for complet- 
ing senior interviews and senior 
credentials. The first meeting on 
Thursday. September 19, at 11 
a.m., will be devoted to covering 
information regarding the Place- 
ment Service, registration for 
placement, and steps the senior 
must take for placement assist- 
ance. 

The second meeting, held on 
Thursday, October 3, at 11 a.m. 
wiil be devoted to job opportuni- 
ties for men with various majors 
and salaries offered. Both these 
meetings will be held in Bowker 
Auditorium. 

Every senior man is urged to 
register with the Placement 
Office before leaving the Univer- 
sity in order to make all records 
up to date. This also applies to 
those students who expect to 
enter the service and to those 



who expect to go to graduate 
school. 

All those who plan to take 
job interviews and those desiring 
counsel may call the Placement 
Office for and individual inter- 
view with a Placement Officer. 
Engineering, Mathematics. Phys- 
ics, and Chemistry majors should 
see Mr. Morrissey; Liberal Arts 
and Business Administration 
majors should see Mr. Terry; 
Agricultural and Education 
majors and those interested in 
teaching should see Mr. Emery. 

Robert J. Morrissey, Director 
of the Placement Services, urges 
all senior men to take advantage 
of these two meetings and the 
individual interviews If it is im- 
possible to attend the first meet- 
ing, report to the Placement 
Office so that arrangements may 
be made to cover this informa- 
tion.

THE MASSACHUSETTS COLLEGIA N, WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 18, 1963 



Editorial Page 

Suitable Salary 

Action is the word at the State House. 
Beacon Hill is undulating to the jiving 
momentum of our states legislative pro- 
cesses. Somewhere there is a bill under con- 
sideration. A bill which is being made suit- 
able to the demands of our Governor. It deals 
with pay raises for state workers. It started 
with the intention of raising the pay of all state 
employees by 10%. However under the influence 
of the President of the Senate John F. Powers 
and speaker of the House John Thompson, the 
bill evolved into a 20% hike for faculty and pro- 
fessional employees and a 10% hike for laborers. 
Governor Peabody is against this 20% raise and 
feels that it should be an all around 10% raise. 
The Governor has his reasons and motives 
for his stand, and they are complex. How- 
ever, we of the Collegian, feel that the 20 c /c 
raise should and must be reconsidered and 
passed by the legislature. 

The average pay for our faculty is too far 
behind other schools. They are the lowest paid 
of the six New England State Universities. There 
•n only a few schools in the state which have a 
lower average pay scale. Harvard's average is 
double that of the University. With competition 
from these other schools, from industry and other 
professions our faculty and administration should 
be paid higher. A lot higher. Secondly good fa- 
culty and good administrators, such as we have, 
are indispensable; whereas a laborer can be 
more easily replaced. Thus the competition is 
more severe on the professional level. 

The laborers should get their raise. But 
the professional people should receive the 
money which is due to them. 

We, at the Collegian, urge Governor Pea- 
body to reconsider his position. 



TRADITION 

The University of Massachusetts is a 
school practically devoid of tradition. 

There is little or no spirit of heritage or 
feeling of history on this campus. 

No longer is there the traditional Spring 
Day, an annual rite of Spring which com- 
menced with the ringing of the Old Chapel 
Bells, and ended when the last man could no 
longer stand. 

Gone are many other UMass traditions 
which have been trampled on in the rush of 
the multitudes which now populate our once 
small university. 

It is thus with regret that the we must 
make note of the fact that one of the very 
few traditions or potential traditions avail- 
able to this campus is rapidly losing ground ; 
the freshmen beanie. 

The freshmen beanie is a ridiculously 
looking thing which materially is worth far 
less than the dollar it costs. However, it is a 
symbol of this University and of its fresh- 
men class, and for this reason it should be 
worn continually and with pride. 

The sponsoring organizations of the 
beanie sale along with the vast majority of 
freshmen who have ceased to wear their dol- 
lar investment deserve to be reprimanded 
for letting one of our last vestiges of tradi- 
tion sink into the muck and mire of apathy. 
Wear your beanie! It doesn't weigh very 
much, but it can mean quite a bit.

Study Time With 

The White Feathered 

Conscience 

by JOHN CHILDS 

Well here it is study time again. But the library is 
quiet, so quiet that if you listen carefully it is possible to 
hear one or two whispered words from the librarians. Well, 
that is too quiet. 

We leave the library for a few minutes of rest at the 
Hatch. It's dark outside. The street lights are out again. 
(They were on during the day for testing purposes.) So 
it's dark. We walk through a confusing forest of tall nar- 
row trees. Their bark is steel cold. They're not trees they're 
street signs. 

Receiving directions on how to cross through the direc- 
tion signs we enter the Hatch. A scene of medieval splendor 
greets us. Rough faced knights, fresh from a day of joust- 
ing sit at long tables, hoisting mugs into the air. Sweet 
voiced innocent young damsels rush back and forth with 
news of palace intrigue. At the head of the great hall the 
minstrel sits singing songs of yore as a group of knights 
and ladies listen with awe to his ever changing voice. 

We leave after a few short hours of stunning conver- 
sation, and stumble back to the library. Somewhere in the 
distance a voice cries, "Don't Hatch-it, don't Hatch-it" 

It's our conscience with white feathers. 

A New Column 

Have a question, comment, or gripe on the current cam- 
pus scene? Starting this semester you will have a chance to 
see the answer on the Collegian editorial page. In response 
to your question, comment. Of gripe, the Collegian editorial 
staff, through questioning of administrative, maintenance, 
and any other involved people, will try to the best of its 
ability to provide answers. The results will be published 
approximately every other week. 

An Ode To Car Registration 

I went down to campus to thow them my car. 
They taid, "It it lovely; the finest by far. 
But you mutt pay three dollars to ttation it here." 
I *aid, "It't outrageous, too COttly I fear." 

They tried to dittuade all my feelingt of dread. 
"This tymbol it priceless, your small price of red." 
But I feel that I paid just two bits for the sticker 
And gave away two-seventy five to the licker.

MELANGE 



Suddenly This Summer 

by STEVE ORLEN 

Suddenly this summer an explosion was 
heard, then another and another still, until 
the whole world rocked. Each explosion was 
of a different kind, and occurred in a differ- 
ent spot on the globe. The reverberations 
caused cannot stop, for the damage has al- 
ready been done. Only mankind and his his- 
tory can assess the outcome of each. 

The mott dramatic explotion of all wat heard 
in America from the Negro demanding hit civil 
rightt. The movement began in the townt and 
large induttrial citiet of the South where the 
Negro population it highest, then tpread to the 
North, and finally culminated in a 200,000-ttrong 
march on the nation't capitol. The debate on Pres- 
ident Kennedy's omnibut civil rightt bill hat been 
put aside by a lethargic Congress, buty with a 
new tax bill, an aircraft scandal, a foreign aid bill 
and a fright over the nation't dwindling gold 
tuppliet. Soon the great debate will begin. 

In Saigon, the capital city of South Viet- 
nam in Southeast Asia, another explosion 
was heard, a similar one. The government 
of this tiny country, in the midst of a U.S.- 
sponsored war with her communist neigh- 
bors to the north, has set off a war within a 
war with her large Buddhist population. 
This was is also a fight for civil rights, for 
the Buddhists claim religious discrimination 
from a Catholic-dominated government. 

Many have been unnecessarily murdered, 
beaten and arrested by the forces of Presi- 
dent Diem, his wife who is aptly nicknamed 
"Dragon Lady," and his brother-in-law, who 
is head of the secret police. This sounds too 
much like the American South. 

There it a growing unrett in the highly seg- 
regated, Aparatheid country of South Africa. The 
U.N. and the whole of the African bloc it putting 
pressure on thit country to change itt policy of 
licented tegregation. The backward itland of 
Haiti hat teen one abortive revolution thit sum- 
mer—against the pertittent tyranny of "Papa 
Doc" Duvalier. The OAS it ttill invettigating. 
Itrael it ditputing with Syria, Portugal with her 
coloniet, India with Red China, North with South 
Korea, and Cuba with her refugees. And to it 
goet. 

In the midst of all this the U.S. has signed 
a nuclear test ban pact with Russia. A bit 
of hope is offered to the peaceful few in a 
world on fire.

THE MASSACHUSETTS COLLEGIAN. WEDNESDAY. SEPTEMBER 18, 196S 



UMass Will Help Build 
High School In Uganda 



The University of Massachu- 
setts, in an unusual interna- 
tional educational experiment, 
will cooperate with the U.S. gov- 
ernment in the construction of 
an all-girl high school for the 
African country of Uganda, it 
was announced today by UMass 
President John W. Lederle. 

Plans for the project began 
two years ago when the Uni- 
versity's School of Education, 
under Dean Albert W. Purvis, 
was asked to consider the pro- 
gram by AID, the Agency for 
International Development. 

Dean Purvis led a survey team 
composed of Elwyn Doubleday, 
principal of East Longmeadow 
High School, and Dean Doris 
Whyard of Northfield School for 
Girls for a preliminary inspec- 
tion tour in Uganda in the sum- 
mer of 1961. 

Dean Purvis returned to 
Uganda in the summer of 1962. 
As a result of the survey team's 
report, AID asked the University 
of Massachusetts to establish the 
high school. Under terms of the 
recently signed contract, the 
University's School of Education 
will provide personnel in Uganda 
and at the University to write 
specifications for all equipment. 
In addition, UMass will recruit 
one-half of the teachers for the 
school, the other half to be pro- 
vided by the Uganda Ministry of 
Education. 

The high school will eventually 
enroll 420 girls. The four major

curricula to be offered will be 
Home Economics, Business, Gen- 
eral, and "Academic." The aca- 
demic major will prepare stu- 
dents for college while the other 
three majors will be terminal. 

The high school will be un- 
usual in many respects. Under 
the British plan of education, the 
"Academic" and Business pro- 
grams will take six years, the 
others four years. Located on 70 
acres of land, the school will be 
inter-denminational and inter- 
racial. AID will pay for con- 
struction, equipment and salaries 
of American teachers. Uganda 
will subsidize the low tuition for 
students. Construction will be 
undertaken by a company in 
Uganda. 

Why an all-girl school? Dean 
Purvis says, "Uganda received 
its independence from Great 
Britian about a year ago, and 
since that time many of the top 
government posts have gone to 
educated men. Many of these 
government leaders are concern- 
ed about the low status of wom- 
en. They also realize the neces- 
sity of having highly educated 
women as wives and mothers." 
In 1960, 708 boys graduated from 
high schools in Uganda, but only 
76 girls received diplomas. 

Mr. Doubleday, who has 
resigned as principal of East 
Longmeadow High School, is the 
first to go to Uganda under the 
recently signed contract. Now on 
his way overseas, Doubleday will 
spend two years in Uganda, 
ordering furniture and equip- 
ment and taking the necessary 
steps to open the school. The 
school will formally open in 
January. 1965. 

Charles Taylor, former super- 
intendent of schools in Foxboro. 
Mass., has joined the University 
of Massachusetts staff as campus 
coordinator for the Uganda pro- 



ject. Part of Taylor's duties will 
be to recruit American faculty 
to staff the Uganda school. 

As part of the project, 13 
Uganda teachers, at a rate of 
three or four a year, will train 
in the University's School of 
Education. They will be trained 
to replace the American teachers 
in the Uganda school. 

According to Dean Purvis, the 
Uganda project is one of the 
largest educational contracts 
that AID has written.

University Introduces 
New Phone System 




The University of Massachu- 
setts has put into operation a 
new telephone system — Centrex. 
The reasons for the change — in- 
creased efficiency and economy. 

UMass is the first New Eng- 
land college or university to use 
the New England Telephone and 
Telegraph Company's new sys- 
tem. 

Persons calling into the Uni- 
versity, from local or long dis- 
tance areas, may dial their party 
directly without going through 
the central switchboard. This in- 
creases efficiency since the pres- 
ent switchboard is not capable 
of handling all incoming calls. 
Parents will now be able to dial 
directly into dormitories, improv- 
ing telephone service between 
students and their parents. 

Because of the University's ra- 
pid expansion, the former tele- 
phone system proved inadequate. 
More than a year ago the Com- 
monwealth approved funds to in- 
stall an expensive three-position 
switchboard. When UMass re- 
ceived fiscal autonomy, Treas- 
urer Kenneth W. Johnson im- 
mediately canceled the order and 
authorized the installation of 
Centrex. This saved the cost of 
expensive additions to present

Men's Judiciary . . . 

(Continued from page 1) 

the custodian for a given num- 
ber of hours. However, if disci- 
plinary action of this type does 
not achieve its purpose, the per- 
son involved may be referred to 
Men's Judiciary. 

What kind of men are needed 
to act as justices? The job is for 
men with alert, deductive, and 
inquiring minds. We need men 
who have a sincere interest in 
the students who may appear be- 
fore them and who will work to 
see that offenders are brought to 
justice. No previous experience 
is necessary to be eligible. The 
only requirement for student eli- 
gibility is that he be a resident 
in the dormitory which he is to 
represent. All previous area rep- 
resentatives are to l>e reap- 
ixiinted this year. 

Persons Interested In becoming 
candidates for the position of 
area court Justice should take 
note of the following timetable: 

Sept. 1H to Sept. 28: Any In- 
terested person may sign up with 
the head of residence In his res- 
pective dormitory. 

Sept. 24: Selection of five final 
candidates by the House Council. 

Sept. 25 to Sept. 27: Final se- 
lection of one Justice from each 
dorm by a panel consisting of 
two Men's Judiciary members 
and two representatives from the 
Student Senate. 

As our enrollment grows, and 
new housing facilities are built, 
there will be an increase in the 
number of area justices and our 
judicial system will become bet- 
ter able to meet the needs of our 
expanding University.

four additional people who would 
have had to be hired to man the 
three-position board. 

Some telephones at the Uni- 
versity can be used for maximum 
range calls under Centrex to on- 
campus extensions, the local 
area, the state, and out of state 
areas. A second group of tele- 
phones are used only for on- 
campus calls and local area calls. 
A third group of telephones are 
for on-campus calls only. 
Charges to the University for 
the limited calling area tele- 
phones are less than for the 
maximum range telephones. 

All long distance calls msde by 
University personnel will now be 
logged against the calling num- 
ber, giving the University a com- 
plete record of calls and their 
cost. 

Until a new directory is issued 
this fall, University personnel 
may be reached directly by pre- 
fixing their present extension by 
545-2. 

Community College 
Transfer Program 
Inaugurated 

Demonstrating a growing 
spirit of cooperation among 
units of the state's higher edu 
cation system, the University 
has enrolled 95 community col 
lege transfer students, inaugu- 
rating a new program designed 
to ease their transition to Uni- 
versity life. 

Most of the 65 men and 30 
women are representatives of 
their local colleges' first gradu- 
ating classes; they took a series 
of classification and advanced 
placement tests during their 
visit. Directors and guidance 
staff members from the com- 
munity colleges have also been 
invited to view the University's 
teaching facilities, and to con- 
fer with administrators and pro- 
fessors. 

Enrollment at UMass repre- 
sents the first exposure to cam- 
pus living for the 95 students 
since the three-year old commu- 
nity college system is designed 
to provide college-level training 
within commuting distance of 
Massachusetts high school grad- 
uates. A two-day summer pro- 
cram included orientation to 
dormitory procedures, a student 
forum with UMass faculty mem- 
bers, academic advisement on 
curriculum and recreational ac- 
tivities. 

According to Dr. J. Alfred 
Southworth. director of the 
Counseling and Guidance office. 
"This group of community col- 
lege transfers is not very large, 
due to the relatively recent es- 
tablishment of the schools. How- 
ever, the program indicates the 
significant degree of continuity 
which is now operational within 
the Commonwealth's higher ed- 
ucation system." 

Dean of Students Field and 
associate registrar Robert Doo- 
Ian. participants in the pro- 
gram, commended the growth 
of the community college move- 
ment, and the degree of com- 
munity support the new schools 
have generated throughout the 
state. 

Community colleges partici- 
pating in the program are 
Berkshire (Pittsfield), Cape Cod 
fllyannis). Northern Essex 
(Haverhill), Greenfield, and 
Massachusetts Bay (Boston), all 
state-sponsored, and the city- 
sponsored junior colleges of 
Holyoke, Newton and Qulncy.

show brings together artists of 
various interests, methods and 
beliefs, and also serves to em- 
phasize the expansion and in- 
creased versatility of the Uni- 
versity's art department, which 
has more than doubled its cur- 
riculum and faculty within the 
past five years. 

An explanatory program, writ- 
ten for the exhibition by UMass 
instructor of art Carl I. Belz, 
lists graphics by Jack Coughlin; 
paintings by John Goodyear, Ed- 
ward Hill and Walter Kamys; 
ceramic art by Lyle Perkins, and 
sculpture by John Townsend. 

The works to be shown, Mr. 
Belz said, "offer an involvement 
with artistic problems as unique 
and diversified as the general 
fabric of contemporary visual ex- 
pression. 

"Representational and non-ob- 
jective forms exist side by side, 
and traditional problems such as 
light, color, and movement are 
brought into consideration." 

With the exception of Mr. Hill, 
all of the exhibiting artists are 
full-time members of the Univer- 
sity faculty. Mr. Hill, an instruc- 
tor of art at Smith College, has 
taught courses at the University 
during the spring semester and 
summer session of this year. 



Enrollment 
Increased 
At Amherst 

A 300-man freshman class will 
begin to arrive on the campus of 
our neighboring institution, Am- 
herst College, for a three day 
period of tests, advice and, hope- 
fully, of academic inspiration. 

The class is the first to be 
admitted on the basis of Am- 
herst's decision to grow from 
1000 to 1200 students. Last year 
270 freshmen were admitted. 
The places of students lost 
through attrition will be filled 
by transfers. 

Amherst's upperclassmen will 
begin arriving during the week- 
end, with registration taking 
place Saturday (September 21) 
and Sunday. Amherst's opening 
convocation is scheduled Sunday 
with classes beginning Monday. 

Amherst's 143rd academic year 
begins with several major addi- 
tions to the College's physical 
plant, among them three new 
dormitories housing 202 students 
and a new Dining Hall Wing 
which will increase the eating 
space by about 300 places. All 
of Amherst's students eat in cen- 
tral dining rooms.

"Discussion Breaks" Set 
Up At Boston University 



It will probably never replace 
the coffee break," but at Boston 
University a unique discussion 
break" has captured the inter- 
est of a small but enthusiastic 
group of students, faculty and 
staff personnel. 

The Informal Education Pro- 
gram as the "break" is known 
officially, is a plan designed pri- 
marily to create a broad intel- 
lectual environment and bring 
down some of the barriers of 
communication between stu- 
dents, faculty and administrative 
personnel in areas not usually 
considered academic. 

For six consecutive weeks, 
professors and students meet in 
informal discussion groups on a 

the demands of the proposed 
study project, and good health. 
Preference is given to applicants 
under 35 years of age. 

Application forms and further 
information for students current- 
ly enrolled in the University 
may be obtained from the Place- 
ment Office. Individual depart- 
ment hears also have lists of 
countries offering opportunities 
in particular fields. 



first-name basis. Each weekly 
meeting is for 90 minutes. Sub- 
jects of discussion are chosen 
by members spontaneously. Each 
group has 12 members, two of 
whom serve as co-leaders. Co- 
leaders are chosen upon the bas- 
is of their previous experience in 
the program. The role of the 
participating leaders is to probe, 
summarize and help the group 
evaluate its progress. 

The leadership function, how- 
ever, is shared by everyone in 
the group. Consequently, the 
participating leaders perform the 
role of participant observers. 
They acquire the various func- 
tions of leadership which are re- 
quired as the group proceeds in 
its discussion. 

An integral part of the over- 
all program is the participating 
leaders' workshops. These work- 
shops are conducted weekly for 
a period of six weeks and are 
attended by group leaders. They 
are designed to explore some of 
the problems encountered by 
participating leaders during 
group experiences.

New Gas 
Tax Bill 
Sent Up 

BOSTON — A special mes- 
sage for the $125,000,000 high- 
way bond issue containing a one- 
cent-a-gallon increase in the gas- 
oline tax is expected from Gov. 
Peabody this afternoon. 

Some Details Unsettled 

Some details of the message 
and the accompanying legislation 
were still in question Monday 
night, according to the Peabody 
office. 

The tax repeatedly has been 
termed an absolute necessity to 
cover expected pay increases in 
State Public Works, the Metro- 
politan District Commission, for 
the state police and for person- 
nel of the Registry of Motor Ve- 
hicles. The Highway Fund from 
which these salaries are paid is 
empty, both Senate Ways and 
Means Chairman William D. 
Fleming, D - Worcester, and 
House Ways and Means Com- 
mittee Chairman John J. Toom- 
ey, D-Cambridge declared. 

If the additional gasoline tax 
is approved it will raise the state 
levy to 6*fc cents a gallon. It will 
be the first increase in the Mas-

sachusetts gasoline tax in nearly 
a decade. In that period all 
states bordering on Massachu- 
setts have raised their gasoline 
tax above this state's. 
Veto Power 

The yield for each cent of the 
gasoline tax is estimated at be- 
tween $12,000,000 and $14,000,000 
annually. 

Most controversial section of 
the highway bond issue will be 
that over the right of 10 cities 
and towns to veto location of 
roads within their boundaries. 
The 10 which have had the veto 
in the past bond issues are 
Springfield, New Bedford, Cam- 
bridge, Lynn, Somerville, Pea- 
body. Boston, Revere, Brookline 
and Saugus. 

It is expected that rather than 
give outright veto power to may- 
ors or selectmen, a version of 
the arbitration board proposal 
approved early in August by the 
House will be followed. Under 
that, each community of the 10 
would name a man to the board; 
so would Public Works or the 
MDA; and a third would be 
agreed upon by the two. If a 
third could not be agreed upon, 
such an individual would be 
named by the governor. 

What in Precise Form 

Major question still being dis- 
cussed by advisors of the gov- 
ernor Monday was what part of 
the legislation, if any, should be 
submitted in precise form. Pre- 
cise form is a device a governor 
may use in submitting special 
messages which bars amendment 
or alteration of legislation by the 
General Court. 

Most expectation Monday was 
that the requirement of the gas- 
oline tax would be in precise 
form, because the financing of 
the bond issue and currently 
proposed spending by the sev- 
eral state agencies demands the 
additional revenue. The big 
question Monday night was ap- 
parently over whether to also tie 
down the "veto" section. 

On that section of the measure, 
mainly, the House and Senate 
became embroiled in disagree- 
ment which resulted in the death 
of the measure between the two 
branches. House floor action al- 
tered the bill to have arbitration 
boards available for all 351 cities

and towns. The Senate eliminat- 
ed the boards, but gave the veto 
to the 10 communities and to an 
additional five. It further amend- 
ed the measure to require speci- 
fic road building projects. 
Agree On Tax Need 

At a meeting with Democratic 
legislative leaders last Friday, 
Gov. Peabody and his fiscal as- 
sistants agreed that the addition- 
al gasoline tax is required to 
keep a balance in the Highway 
Fund. Highway maintenance 
costs have increased in recent 
years to care for the $850,000,000 
worth of new roads that have 
been established. The additional 
pay requirements which will be 
imposed by pending pay raise 
legislation make the additional 
revenue doubly necessary. 

But passage of a gasoline tax 
through the House and Senate 
will not be an easy matter. For 
months, highway user groups, 
the petroleum industry, and 
gasoline retailers have been 
bombarding legislators with ex- 
pressions of distaste for any in- 
crease in the tax on gasoline and 
diesel fuel. The effectiveness of 
this lobbying has been demon- 
strated by the blocking of any 
additional gasoline tax for nearly 
a decade.

Housing Motion On Agenda 
At Tonight's Senate Meeting 

■ 




THE STl'DENT SENATE IN ACTION 

All meetings of the Student Senate are open to the public. Stu- 
dents are urged to attend and watch representatives In action. 



A bill which would establish 
an Ad Hoc Committee on Stu- 
dent Housing will be presented 
at tonight's meeting of the Stu- 
dent Senate. Sponsored by Sen- 
ator David Mathieson fAt-t-,arge 
'64), the bill defines tne func- 
tion cf the committee as fol- 
lows: 

"1. To further Investigate stu- 
dent housing conditions. 

2. To present for consldera- 
tlon. recommendations on hous- 
ing which will be conveyed to the 
Board of Trustees and other ap- 
propriate officials. 

S. To take such action as may 
promote the amelioration of the 
problem." 

Regarding the bill, Mathieson 
states: 'This bill was stimulated 
by the predicament in which 
close to a third of the undergrad- 
uate body has found itself in due 
to the ill-considered housing pol- 
icy of an administration madly 
rushing to reach preconceived 
1970 goals without adequately 
considering the consequences of 
that policy." 

"The unfortunate combination 
of the policy of increasing the 
size of each entering class with 
the fact that the high-rise dorm- 
itories are a full year behind 
schedule has resulted in an enor- 
mous housing problem. 

"It is therefore urgent that the 



student body should be given a 
voice in trying to solve the prob- 
lem and in the prevention of its 
repetition." 

A second measure would have 
the Senate establish a commit- 
tee to 'study the effect on the 
institution of a tri-semester aca- 
demic year would have on stu- 
dent life." 

The committee will investigate 
the effect of the tri-semester on 
not only the academic life of the 
student but also its effect on ex- 
tracurricular activities and class 
traditions. The bill, also spon- 
sored by Senator Mathieson, has 
as its ultimate aim the education 
of the student body in prepara- 
tion for a poll which the admin- 
istration will conduct on the sub- 
ject during the year. 

Also on the agenda are two 
proposed amendments to the 
Constitution, the first would 
raise the number of representa- 
tives which a given area would 
be allowed to have in the Senate, 
face of the greatly expanded 
commuter population. 

The second would open dabate 
on a series of changes offered 
by a special senate committee. 

Finally, the Senate will debate 
a bill which urges the student 
body to attend the opening con- 
vocation.

with approximately 100 profes- 
sionals of varied backgrounds — 
educators, administrators, engi- 
neers, etc. — who have served in 
a professional capacity overseas. 

According to the directors, 
"There is really not enough 
known about the problems pro- 
fessionals meet when they go 
abroad. We are particularly in- 
terested in the kinds of univer- 
sity training, for example in 
familiarization with foreign cul- 
tures, which help professionals 
most in their work abroad." 

Many members of the UMass 
faculty and staff who have 
served overseas will participate. 
Faculty members at Smith, 
Mount Holyoke and Amherst 
Colleges, and extension service 
officials with foreign profession- 
al experience will also be in- 
cluded. 

Through the interviews, the 
two professors hope to uncover 
overseas influences on profes- 
sional roles which seem most 
widespread. These influences and 
their later effects on individual 
careers at home, will provide 
guidelines for the two-day semi-

Amherst Zoning Board 
Discusses U.M. Growth 



University growth was a prime 
topic of discussion at a meeting 
last week between Amherst Se- 
lectmen and members of the Am- 
herst Planning Board. 

Planning Board Chairman 
Theodore Bacon stated the nec- 
essity for a campus oriented busi- 
ness area. He said he thought 
the town should decide on an 
area south of UM, zone it and 
have it well in hand before the 
dorms are built. 

On the basis of his experience, 
Zoning Board Chairman Arnold 
Rhodes said, when the campus 
zone was suggested, residents 
claimed fraternities would de- 
grade their property, but now 
when a fraternity tries to buy 
the price is way up. The same 
thing, he said, would be true of 
an expanded business district, 
prices would go up. A business 
could move out to a field for a 
lost less. 

Discussing the future of apart- 
ment house Rhodes said the 
growth of the University was 
bringing more people who want 
apartment living," they are not 
wedded to the earth." The desire 



for apartments, he said, will in- 
crease faster than the popula- 
tion increases. Since most of the 
apartments presently being built 
are not large enough for chil- 
dren, the need of people with 
families for apartments is not 
being met. 

Building Code Needed 

The Zoning Board of Apr •vis, 
Rhodes felt, can limit the density 
on new apartment buildings, 
make sure of the esthetics, etc., 
but doesn't have the knowledge 
necessary to determine whether 
the building will be well con- 
structed or not. Amherst needs 
a building code, he said. 

Building Inspector Ralph Hos- 
ford felt strongly that any apart- 
ment building should be on per- 
mit from the zoning board. 
Medical School 

Time ran out before the last 
item on the agenda, the medical 
school, could be discussed. Se- 
lectman Norman MacLeod, 
speaking personally, expressed 
himself in favor of the idea, but 
the two boards have not come to 
a firm decision on the question 
as yet. 



Computer Indicates 
New Trend 



by JOHN CHILDS 

In Orwell's 198 4 it is said of 
this future state, "The ideal set 
up by the Party was something 
huge, horrible, and glittering, a 
world of steel and concrete, of 
monstrous machines ..." In 
one way or another more than 
one of the latter-day prophets 
has warned of this future world 
where man is subordinated to 
gleaming machines that digest 
the minds of men and become 
the conquerors of men from that 
very digestion. 

Indeed there is something 
about the concept of computers 
that raises fears in the minds 
of many. Such was the case 
when the use of computer sched- 
uling was begun at the Univer- 
sity under the guidance of H. 
Hills Skillings. University Sched- 
uling Officer and Assistant Pro- 
fessor of Mathematics. Many 
complained that they did not 
want a machine "telling us 
where to go". The impersonality 
of a machine which implies a 
disregard for the individual both- 
ered many students as it bothers 
many people. 

The scheduling computer which 
r.nsed such fears is in reality 
two computers. One. the "work- 
horse" is an IBM 1401 located 
downstairs in South College. It 
is this machine which processes 
data. This data is then sent to 
Boston where 7090 "the brains" 
of the operation works on it. 
The data is then returned to 
Amherst for re-processing. 

"But why." some ask, "why 
the computer at all?" The pop- 
ulation of the Unniversity is in- 
creasing tremendously. The im- 
pact of this on hand scheduling 
methods was extremely hard. 
Something was needed, not to 
replace the human and his inad-

equacies but to augment him and 
his capabilities. As Professor 
Skillings says in his pamphlet, 
Why Computer Scheduling?, 
"The ultimate objective of com- 
puter scheduling is to produce 
combinations of teachers, stu- 
dents, times and rooms which 
provide the best education for 
the maximum number of stu- 
dents ..." This cannot be done 
by people alone. 

By the same token however, if 
it cannot be done by people alone 
it certainly cannot be done by 
only the machines. What strikes 
one upon investigating computer 
scheduling here at the University 
is that despite the warnings of 
the prophets this is a human oy 
eration. The people who run Uni- 
versity scheduling, to be sure, 
make mistakes — even with the 
computers. They are not perfect. 
If they are not perfect, how- 
ever, they are continually striv- 
ing to meet the needs of the peo- 
ple, of the individuals of the 
University. 

As Professor Skillings points 
out, the combination of teachers, 
students, times and rooms ". . . 
must be accomplished with full 
regard for the needs of both fac- 
ulty and students." It is signi- 
ficant to the philosophy behind 
the computer scheduling at the 
University that ". . . concentra- 
tion is being given to develop a 
system that will deal with the 
individual as a human and not 
as a mere item on the assembly 
line." 

If the trend is toward the en- 
slavement of people by machines, 
it may be that we see in these 
above statements a counter- 
trend.

Beginning his third year at the 
helm of the Redmen football re-

head coach in the seventy-nine 
year history of football at the 
University of Massachusetts.

He graduated in 1938 with a B.S. 
degree from Manhattan College. 
On the football field for the Jas-

After his graduation from 
Manhattan, Fusia taught for a 
year at a boys school in New

years at Indiana (Pa.) H.S. with 
an undefeated team in 1950. Vic 
then served for four years as 
backfield coach at Brown Uni-

the position of backfield coach 
and first assistant to head coach

Fitness Tests To Precede 
Men's Phys. Ed. Courses 



by RICHARD RYAN 

All male students in the 
Freshman and Sophomore classes 
who are required tc take physi- 
cal education are currently un- 
dergoing a series of three Motor 
Fitness Tests. These three tests: 
pull-ups, sitting tucks, and mile 
run, are designed to measure the 
endurance and strength of 
UMass students. 

Each student's raw score on 
each of the three tests will be 
changed into an equivalent per- 
centile score based on national 
testing in these events. The three 
percentile scores will then be 
added together and again com- 
pared against the national fig- 
ures. 

IF A STUDENT'S compound 
score is in the lowest 15 per- 
centile, he is then required to 
take conditioning, an eight week 



course utilizing the Canadian 
five basic exercises (5Bx) plus 
pull-ups and other instruction de- 
signed to improve the student's 
physical fitness. Dr. David C. 
Bischoff, Director of Required 
Physical Education, stressed that 
the purpose of the conditioning 
course was to raise the level of a 
student's physical proficiency so 
that he will enjoy the other phy- 
sical education courses he is tak- 
ing during the year. Those stu- 
dents who score in the top per- 
centiles will have first preference 
of courses. 

The whole testing program 
was designed to place students in 
those courses in which they will 
be of about equal athletic skill 
with their classmates and there- 
by Bet greater enjoyment and 
benefits from their classes.

Redmen Will Play 
Army In Soccer 



by SCOTT FREEDLAND »66 



Intercollegiate soccer returns 
to the UMass campus Saturday, 
September 21. as the varsity 
soccer team prepares to face a 
rugged Army team. Out to 
avenge last year's 4-2 loss at 
West Point, in which the Red- 
men outscored and held scoreless 
the cadets in the second half, the 
Redmen will find conditioning 
the real problem. With only six 
players able to return for early 
practice, the rugged Army condi- 
tioning could be a major factor 
in an even, open game. 

Defensively on paper the team 
is in the strongest position it has 
been for years. The loss of All 
American Captain Dick Repeta 
to a sprained ankle weakens the 
fullback line of Repeta and Yan- 
do. The weakened full back line 
might necessitate the dropping 
back of a halfback to protect 
Dick Phillipps who has little 
experience as a goalie, a position 
in which the loss of Freshman 
standout Rick Gustavsen could 
be hard felt. 

Coach Briggs feels that he has 
the best first line in five years, 
in hio words "all scorers". 
Seniors Dick Leete and Kevin 
Lyons, Junior Pat McDevitt, and 
Sophomore Mike Zarrptny add 
strength and depth to the attack. 
Lack of real depth due to condi- 
tioning and the number of 
interested players will hamper 
the booters Saturday. 

If the opener against West 
Point proves to be a poor show- 
ing it is not likely to be a fore- 
cast of a poor season. Injuries 
due to poor conditioning will 



decrease as the season lengthens 
and as the inexperienced gain 
from actual play. The booters 
have the material to be a Yankee 
Conference threat when the Yan- 
Con league of UVM-UMass-URI 
and UConn makes its debut in a 
year or two with Maine and 
UNH to be added.

Anyone interested in applying 
for manager of the varsity soc- 
cer team should contact Coach 
Larry Briggs in the Men's Phy- 
sical Education Building.

A married student who is try- 
ing to gain a college education 
is confronted with many prob- 
lems. He must find a means of 
supporting his family as well as 
giving a goodly portion of his 
time to the necessary home life. 
A married athlete has the same 
problems, but in a more ad-

he can spend with his family 
and makes the financial burden 
more pressing because he can-

The 1963 edition of the Red-

Letterman Peter Pietz added, 
"My wife stayed at home, since 
it would be so difficult to see 
each other during that period 
and there was nothing for her 
to do around here." 

Since players do not have a 
chance to hold outside jobs, they 
were asked about how they fi- 
nanced their way in school. 
Burke said, "I need the scholar- 
ship help that I get, but even 
then it is tough. Most of the 
money earned during the sum- 
mer is spent right away." Pietz 
commented, "My wife works now 
to help out. I'm not on scholar- 
ship, so that money plus what I 
earn in the summer gets us 
through the year."

Senate Hits Housing Policy 



by ELWIN MoNAMARA *Ct 
"The (housing) situation has 

grown from the mildly offensive 
to the ridiculous to the ludi- 
crous." This was spoken by Sen- 
ator Bill Landis at last night's 
Student Senate meeting. He gave 
the utterance after hearing Sen- 
ator Dave Mathieson tell in de- 
tail the extent of the housing 
problem at the University. 

In his opening remarks, Ma- 
thieson stated that the condition 
was the result of two factors: 
the "ill considered housing policy 
of an administration madly rush- 
ing to reach preconceived 1970 
goals" and the failure of the M. 
J. Walsh Co. to complete the new 
high-rise dorms on time. 

Mathieson read the following 
figures on tripling into the Sen- 
ate record: 

Hills North — 48 triples 

Hills South — 49 triples 

Chadbourne — 85 triples 

Greenough — 36 triples 

Butterf ield— over 40 

Wheeler— 36 triples 

Mills — 44 triples 

Baker — 87 triples 

Brett— over 40 

Gorman— 63 triples 
He also stated that the second 
floor of Hampshire House, a 
married students' dorm, has been 
converted to house 44 single stu- 
dents. This creates a situation 
where there are married students 
on the first and third floors and 
single students on the second. 
Plymouth House, which last year 
housed 86 women, this year 
houses 138 men with the aid of 
two quadruples. 

The normal capacity of the 
men's dormitories is 2261. This 
year they have 2870 men packed 
into them. 

The women's dormitories, Ma- 
thieson stated, are not much bet- 
ter. This is not as much the 
problem of triple rooms as unu- 
sual living conditions. Women 
have been forced into everything 
from janitor's apartments and 

Revelers 

Establish 
Tradition 

The climax of the many events 
of the past week which have wel- 
comed the Class of 1967 to our 
campus will be the Freshman 
Dance on Saturday, September 
21 It is hoped that the Fresh- 
man Dance, initiated by the Rev- 
elers last year will become a new 
tradition at the University. 

The dance will provide an ex- 
cellent opportunity for Freshmen 
to meet their classmates, thus 
creating greater cohesion and 
class spirit. 

Music by Paul Collins will set 
the tone for fun and dancing 
from 8:30 until 12 In the S. U. 
Ballroom. All Freshmen are in- 
vited; admission is 75c per couple 
or 50c per person. Come Join the

kitchenettes to utility rooms. In 
Arnold House a Gordon Linen 
room has been pressed into serv- 
ice. In Crabtree and Johnson 
basement study rooms have been 
taken over and are now quadru- 
ples. In Knowlton, a basement 
storage room now houses 4 wom- 
en. Finally, in Leach and Thatch- 
er, the janitor's apartment, a two 
room suite, now holds eight. 

Utility rooms are also being 
used as singles in Arnold (3), 
Crabtree (1). Dwight (3), Leach 
(1) and Mary Lyon (3). 

Many women in Dwight, Mary 
Lyon and Johnson are being tri- 
pled without rebate. 

The crowded housing, it is felt, 
will have its emotional results 
also. A growing apprehension 
over the possibility of future ri- 
ots has been voiced by both stu- 
dents and administration. 

Campus Chief of Police Alex- 
ander Blasko informed the Colle- 
gian that his force stands ready 
to cope with any exigencies. If 
necessary, auxiliary, Amherst, 
and State police forces will be 
called in to quell any disturb- 
ances. 

He said that in the past dem- 
onstrators have been quelled 
without injury to students, but 
pointed out that his officers will 
protect themselves. Force, he 
said, may someday have to be 
met with force. However, he 
went on to explain that force will 
be a last resort with the campus 
police. 

An informed source stated that 
the administration is planning to 
affix high intensity lights onto 
both Brooks and Van Meter 
Dorms in anticipation of disturb- 
ances in the area of those dorms. 



Unanimous Bill Sets Up 
In ves tiga ting Comm it tee 



by DON JOHNSON '66 
Last night an aroused, and 
genuinely concerned Student 
Senate unanimously approved a 
bill calling for the establishment 
of an Ad Hoc Committee on Stu- 
dent Housing to further investi- 
gate Student Housing conditions 
on campus. 

The bill, sponsored by Senator 
David Mathieson (At-large '64) 
received strong verbal support 
from senators Dick Boyden 
(commuters) and Ross Jones 
(Brett). In addition, a strongly 
worded, condemnatory speech, 
blasting existing conditions, was 
delivered by Senator William 
Landis (at large '65 \ and is re- 
printed, in full, elsewhere on this 
page. 

In his opening words, Senate 
President Jon Fife proposed that, 
for the Senate, this would be "a 
challenging year ... a good 
year." Just how challenging was 
soon demonstrated by Senate re- 
action to housing conditions as 
outlined by Senator Mathieson, 
and the action taken upon the 
bill, which reads as follows: 
Whereas the Student Senate 
deeply regrets the present hous- 
ing situation (September 1963) 
which finds a great part of the 
undergraduate student body 
adversely affected by being 
situated in triples, quadruples, 
and other abnormal quart erss 
and, 
Whereas the Student Senate 



Senator Blasts 
School Policy 



by BILL LANDIS 

The following is the text of 
the speech given by Senator-at- 
Large William Landis during 
debate on University housing 
policy. 

I AM INDEED alarmed by 
the present housing situation 
confronting all of us at this uni- 
versity. The situation has grown 
from the mildly offensive to the 
ridiculous to the ludicrous. 

The primary purpose of a uni- 
versity is to provide a young 
man or young woman who seeks 
an education with the proper fa- 
cilities with which he or she may 
glean the benefits of a liberal 
knowledge. It has been stated 
that the primary concern of 
American education today is to 
cultivate in the largest number 
of our future citizens an appre- 
ciation of both the responsibili- 
ties and of the benefits which 
come to them because they are 
American and free. 



THIS UNIVERSITY HAS va- 
cillated somewhat from this con- 
cern, for I am inclined to think 
that we students are no longer 
completely free, but somehow — 
"unavoidably" perhaps — restrict- 
ed. The common stock of intel- 
lectual enjoyment should not be 
difficult of access. When access 
borders upon the difficult - if not 
the impossible then we are not 
here for liberal education. 

We are here for sharing clos-

likewise deeply regrets the cir- 
cumstances wherein the Housing 
Office has been forced to appeal 
to the people of the neighboring 
towns for quarters for an addi- 
tional 500 students for whom 
there is no space on campus; 
Be it resolved that the Student 
Senate, ever mindful of its duty 
to safeguard the interests and 
welfare of the student body, 
established an Ad Hoc Commit- 
tee on Student Housing. The 
function to be as follows: 

1. To further investiagte Stu- 
dent Housing conditions. 

2. To present for the Senate's 
consideration, recommendations 
on housing which will be con- 
veyed to the Board of Trustees 
and other appropriate officials. 

3. To take such action as may 
promote the amelioration of the 
problem. 

Said Ad Hoc Committee shall be 
composed of mevibers of the 
Student Senate, n jnescntatives 
of the Interdorm Councils and 
interested undergraduates ap- 
pointed by the President of the 
Student Union. 

Forceful action was also taken 
by the Senate regarding the on- 
campus parking situation, and 
the justice of the three dollar 
registration fee was questioned. 
In introducing a bill calling the 
administration to account Sena- 
tor Dave Clancy (fraternities) 

The three dollar car registra- 
tion fee has been the subject of 
wide spread controversy in view 
of the large number of cars reg- 
istered, and the extremely lim- 
ited parking facilities available 
for them on campus. The bill, as 
passed by the Senate, reads as 
follows: 

Whereas the Student Senate is 
the official sounding board of 



student opinion: 

Be it resolved that the Serv- 
ices Committee of the Senate be 
instructed to approach the 
administration in regards to the 
present solution of on-campus 
parking conditions with special 
reference to cost, receipts, and 
future use of these receipts. 



SENATE HUMOR 

Last night's Senate meeting 
was not without its humor. Pres- 
ident Jon Fife read the resigna- 
tion of Senator Steve Gray from 
the Senate. At the end just as he 
finished the customary "Is there 
any objection?", a burst of 
cheering from a meeting down 
the hall filled the chambers. The 
entire Senate burst into laugh- 
ter. Fife quipped, "I hope that 
is not an editorial comment from 
the Senate." 



In another action, the fact 
that the administration is con- 
sidering the institution of a tri- 
mester academic year moved the 
Senate to vote in favor of estab- 
lishing an Ad Hoc Committee to 
study what effects said system 
would have on student life, class 
structure, extra-curricular activ- 
ities, and the financial status of 
those students working their way 
through school, to whom summer 
jobs are vital. 

A significant development felt 
worthy of the students' immedi- 
ate consideration, also received 
favorable action. A proposal that 
the Student Senate endorse and 
urge strong student participation 
at the President's Convocation 
Thursday, September 26th at 
11:15 in the Student Union Ball- 
room passed without opposition.

Relative Beastiality 

by JOHN B. CHILDS 

p 

We recently ran across a book review which in the pro- 
cess of praising a war novel states, "The soldier seeing the 
enemy advancing under cover of a herd of cows humanely 
turns the cows aside before hand grenading his adver- 
saries." We closely checked the review for signs that the 
reviewer was a subtle humorist sneaking about under the 
cover of sarcasm. We found none. The word ''humanely," 
it would seem, is to be taken as meaning humane. 

The role of the hand-grenade lobbing G.I. is not the 
issue here. The thinking of the reviewer is. For the G.I. 
it was simply a case of throw the grenade or feel the bite of 
a bullet through his body. For this reviewer it seems to be 
a matter of confusion on the relative value of cows and 
people. 

The reviewer believes that it is humane to save cows 
while in the midst of shooting humans. The reviewer, if we 
may be so bold as to interpret his thinking, seems to believe 
this on the assumption that the soldier is not taking life 
indiscriminately. He is taking life from other humans be- 
cause he is forced to, but at least he is aware of the value 
of life and thus saves the cows. 

The value of humanity is therefore reduced. It is reduced 
from the level of human life to the level of bestial life. The val- 
uelessness of beastial life is raised to the level of humans. What 
goo does it do to praise the raising of one value while at the 
same time a more important value is being reduced? 

We look with considerable unease upon the writing of one 
who would place us in a position relative to cows such that we 
would reach the stockyard before they would. 



The Physotomous Phthriasis 

Keep The Berlin Wall 

by SAM GORVINE 

All right. I lied. I said I wasn't going to discuss poli- 
tics, but I've changed my mind — sort of. I think that what 
you are about to read had to be written. I wrote it because 
it is the way I feel. 

This column is really about murder. It is about the 
murder of Jews, Poles, Russians, and assorted members of 
most European nations. The official score cards total the 
number at between four and six million depending on who 
you believe. But this is an old story. I'm sure you must be 
tired of hearing it. 

You must also be tired of hearing about the various 
experiments which were performed to further the cause 
of science. I am told that someone from the University com- 
munity had the good fortune as a child to have her calf 
muscle removed. I suppose they wanted to see what would 
happen. Most admirable, this curiousity which makes the 
Germans such good scientists. We must give credit where 
credit is due. 

But I digress. I was talking about the Berlin Wall. It 
seems that most of these people were imprisoned for a time 
before being given the benefit of German medicine or per- 
manent anesthetic. It is most fitting that people (they ARE 
the same ones, for the most part, you know) who were in- 
strumental in the imprisonment and despair of so many 
should have it turned on them, even if it is only token, and 
even if the people who arranged it did so for their own 
reasons. 

The final horror of it, gentlemen, is that these men 
whom I call murderers are our brothers. Yes, mine too. 
They have the sickness of Cain in them, which we call by 
more sophisticated names nowadays, but we have in us 
the capacity to do as bad or worse. I ask myself that if I 
could wish death on all those who raised their right arms 
to Hitler, and these were millions, would I? I think I would. 
There is the proof of our brotherhood. The only difference 
is that they had the power to back their wishes, and I don't.

pleased? Do you feel like expressing yourself?

STUDENT 

VIOLENCE 

COORDINATING 

COMMITTEE 

Having felt as one with 
the students of my time, the 
rioters in Hundary, Turkey, 
Japan, Korea, Peru, etc. I 
feel that I have missed some 
of the joy of student life. I've 
never been in a revolution, 
a riot or even a mild dis- 
turbance. This upsets me no 
end. 

It is not that I have lacked 
provocation. Certainly the 
gameskeepers, janitors and 
cops (not necessarily in that 
order) who have insulted me 
deserve the "death of a thous- 
and cuts" or the fundamental 
fate of Edward. But a riot of 
one (namely me) is not only 
no fun, but it can also be dan- 
gerously expulsive (sic). 

"But," you may say, "the 
Hungarians were fighting 
for freedom." Well so am I. 
And I am you. I want to be 
free from the corruption of 
peeling license plates, unfin- 
ished dorms and three-dollar 
decals. I want to be free 
from "triples," block-long 
lines and inadequate park- 
ing facilities. And most of 
all I want to be free from 
humiliation, whether in the 
treasurer's office, the pool 
room or the Hatch. I want 
to stand up and say "Sir, 
(for I always say that) I 
am your raison d'etre. I am 
a student. And there is no 
shame in that." 
. .1 wonder if these rioters, 
these revolutionaries who 
seem to occupy every Uni- 
versity in the "non-civilized" 
world are ashamed of being 
students. I wonder if they 
shuffle their feet when they 
walk into an office or if they 
stand silent when abused by 
their University's employ- 
ees. I wonder about things 
like that. 

I wonder if the guys who 
were throwing Molotov 
cocktails at the Russian 
tanks were in the process of 
losing one-third of a grade 
for cutting class. I wonder 
about things like that. 

I wonder, most of all, if 
there is anything about which 
students desire to be violent. 
Hence I call for the formation 
of the Student Violence Coor- 
dinating Committee. I nomin- 
ate myself for president (since 
I am of highly uneven temper- 
ament) and I draw our stand- 
ard, the banner under which 
we march, from America's rev- 
olutionary past. It will be a flag 
with a coiled snake and the 
words "Don't tread on me."

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR 

Car Registration and The Proper Education 

An Open Letter to All Concerned: 

I am writing this letter in objection to a recently in- 
stituted ruling concerning the registration of motor ve- 
hicles at this University. This ruling states that a student, 
after fulfilling other provisions, must have "required motor 
vehicle liability insurance, as well as guest and extra terri- 
torial bodily injury coverage and property damage liability 
coverage in the amount of at least five thousand dollars". 

I am not able to meet this last requirement. I have all 
of the insurance required by Massachusetts law, but can- 
not afford any increased coverage as demanded by the Uni- 
versity. As a financially independent student, receiving no 
outside financial help except for government loans, I must 
pay for all of my college expenses from money earned sum- 
mers and part time after classes. My car is a necessity to 
me. I allows me to live off campus at a cost of less than $90 
a semester, compared to the University dorm rent of $100- 
$150 a semester. Since I have a kitchen in my off -campus 
housing, I am able to eat at a cost of $115-$130 a semester, 
compared to Dining Commons' costs of over $200. Most of 
all, my car enables me to travel back and forth to my two 
part-time jobs; one on campus, the other in the town of 
Amherst. Getting through school would be a great hardship 
to me without the use of my car. I imagine many other stu- 
dents are in a similar situation. 

Some people ask how, under such financial difficulties, 
I can afford a car. Well, it's an old car. Parts are missing, 
it's well dented, it doesn't run fast, and it looks like a wreck. 
But it's mechanically safe and reliable. It gets me where 1 
want to go. I doubt I could sell it for more than $15. By tak- 
ing riders, my gas costs are minimal. 

The basic reason for imposing the new insurance regu 
lations, according to administrative officials, is for "the 
protection of students." I am a responsible person, both 
legally (23 yrs. of age) and intellectually. I know my capa- 
bilities, my obligations in case of an automobile accident, 
and the risks involved in driving without insurance cover- 
age over the lawful requirement. Weighing all factors, I 
have exercised my right as a responsible citizen and decided 
what insurance I need and want. In other words, I don't 
want to be protected, don't need to be protected, and don't 
feel I should be protected. 

It seems rather ironic, and *!«o unjust, that a student at this 
University, which was established partly on the principle of pro- 
viding an education for those unable to afford an education other- 
wise, should prohibit a student from the privilege AND BENEFITS 
of a motor vehicle because of economic reasons, thus inhibiting 
his ability to get a proper education. 

It is also ironic that the Administration of this University, 
which purports to teach men to think and decide for themselves, 
should usurp this right and freedom by imposing its own will 
on the student body. 

Robert L. Newey '66 
To the Editor: 

I would like to disagree with you in reference to the Fresh- 
men not continuing that great tradition of wearing beanies. It 
seems to me that somehow the freshmen found out that this in- 
significant and ridiculous tradition started only four years ago. 
Realizing this, the freshmen PROMPTLY substituted for this "new ■ 
custom a much more sweeping tradition prevalent on this campus 
. . . APATHY. Freshmen, welcome aboard!

ONCE MORE UNTO THE BREACH, 
DEAR FRIENDS 

Today I begin my tenth year of writing this column in your 
campus newspaper. Ten years is a long time; it is, in fact, what 
some scholarly people like to call a decade— from the Latin 
word (Uccum, meaning the floor of a ship. It is, to my mind, 
remarkable that the Romans had such a word as deccum when 
you consider that ships did not exist until 1620 when John 
Alden invented the Mayflower. Alden, a prodigiously ingenious 
man, also invented the ear lobe and Pocahontas. 

Ships were a very popular mode of travel— especially over 
water— until 1912 when the Swede, Ivar Krueger, invented the 
iceberg. Krueger also invented the match, which is a good 
thing, because without the match, how would you light your 
Marlboro Cigarettes? I cannot overstress the importance of 
lighting your Marlboro Cigarettes, for Marll*>ro Cigarettes, 
unlighted, provide, at best, only limited smoking pleasure. 




S mttm (MH Mwt° r §oMlMi 



I mention Marlboros because this column is an advertise- 
ment, brought to you through the school year by the makers 
of Marllwros. Marlboros come in soft pack or Flip-Top box. 
The makers of Marlboros come in dark suits with thin lapels 
—except on weekends when they come in yoke-neck jerseys 
and white duck trousers. White ducks come in flocks. They are 
primarily fresh water dwellers, although they have been suc- 
cessfully raised in salt water too. Another salt water deniaen 
I'm sure you will find enjoyable is plankton— a mess of tiny 
organisms like diatoms and algae and like that which float 
sluggishly near the surface of the sea. It is ironic that these 
creatures, microscopic in size, should supply the principal 
source of food for the earth's largest animal, the whale. Whales, 
I must say, are not at all pleased with this arrangement, be- 
cause it takes the average whale, eating steadily, 48 hours to 
gather a day's meal. This leaves them almost no time for 
water sports cr reading Melville. It is a lucky thing for all of 
us that whales are unaware they are mammals, not fish, and 
could, if they tried, live just as well on land as in water. I 
mean, you add ten or twelve million whales to our Sunday 
traffic and you would have congestion that makes the mind 
boggle. 

But I digress. Today, I was saying, I begin my tenth year of 
writing this column for Marlboro Cignrettes in your campus 
newspaper. I will, in each column, say a few kind words about 
Marlboros— just as you will, once you try that fine tobacco 
flavor, that pristine white filter, that supple soft pack, that 
infrangible Flip-Top box. These references to Marlboro will be 
brief and unobtrusive, for I do not l>elieve in the hard sell. 
What I favor is the soft sell— you might even call it the limp 
or spongy sell. I hasten to state that the makers of Marlboro 
in ten full years have not once complained about my desultory 
•ales approach. Neither have they paid me. 

But that is of small consequence. Aside from fleeting mentions 
of Marlboro, this column has another, and more urgent, mission: 
to cast the hot white light of free inquiry upon the vexing 
questions that trouble college America— questions like "Should 
the Student Council have the power to levy tariffs? and "Are 
roommates sanitary?" and "Should housemothers be com- 
pelled to retire upon reaching the age of 26?" 

Perhaps, reasoning together, we can find the answers. Per- 
haps not. But if we fail, let it never be said that it was for 
want of trying. 

I thank you. # im MM Wmm

The Folk Scene 

by BOB WEBER 

This summer's Newport Folk 
Festival was an overwhelming 
success. Attendance at the eve- 
ning concerts averaged over 
11,000. Highlights of the activi- 
ties at Freebody Park included 
the performances of Bob Dylan, 
Judy Collins, blues singers Dave 
Van Ronk, Mississippi John 
Hammond, Jr., the Scruggs ban- 
jo playing of Amherst College 
grad Will Keith, the bluegrass 
of the Dillards, and Joan Baez.

the beaches, just talk to some-

one who was there! If you missed 
this year's Festival, there will 
definitely be another next sum- 
mer promising to be even better. 

The Philadelphia Folk Fes- 
tival, which was held in Paoli, 
Penn., Sept, 6, 7 and 8, marked 
the East coast debut of a great 
female blues singer named Judy 
Roderic. Singing blues in a style 
all her own, she created the 
greatest sensation on a lull 
which included the Greenbriar 
Boys, Dave Van Ronk, Hedy 
West and Bonnie Dobson. More 
on Judy at a later date. 

Local radio stations are now 
regularly programming folk mu- 
sic schows. Folk music can be 



heard on WACE, Chicopee, 730 
KC from 4-5 p.m. on Saturdays, 
and week-nights on WSPR, 
Springfield, 1270 KS from 7-8. 
Our own radio station WMUA 
will soon be offering folk music. 
Program time is not definite as 
of yet.

uated from UMass in '62, just 
finished an engagement at the

will appear this Saturday night

One last note for now: the 
latest record releases in the folk

The Dear Abbey Of The Milk Routes 



by JAY ISQI'R 

I am a pasteur in a "tennis- 
playing" community. My congre- 
gation is so tennis-playing that 
the milkman leaves cans of ten- 
nis balls along with the milk. I 
myself am a fairly good tennis 
player. Why, just yesterday — ah, 
but I am digressing. 

About ten years ago I began 
receiving certain epistles, strange 
epistles, epistles such as the fol- 
lowing: 

"Are chops, slices and drop 
shots effective on fast surfaces?" 
I reflected for some time on the 
remarkable nature of such let- 
ters. Ruling out the ridiculous 
but rather disturbing thought 
that I might have been somehow 
mistaken for the United States 
Lawn Tennis Association, I rea- 
sonably concluded that my peo- 
ple — having problems of a quite 



personal nature - felt more at 
ease in referring to them through 
analog. And of course, the peo- 
ple being tennis oriented, their 
analogies were tennis oriented — 
and at times, I must admit, quite 
subtle. 

Having built up quite an an- 
thology of such letters, and also 
of my rather — ahem— skillful, 
perceptive, and abstract answers 
to them, I feel others might de- 
rive some benefit from reading 
these the problems of my peo- 
ple. 

Question: In doubles, if a ball 
is hit down the middle, should 
the left court player take it on 
his forehand? 

Answer: In the case of im- 
portant decisions, the actions of 
the husband and wife should de- 
pend entirely on the particular

situation. The husband should 
take the initiative on important 
decisions while his wife stands 
quietly in the background. Of 
course, even if his wife refuses 
to stand quietly in the back- 
ground, the husband should be 
ready to step in once the wife 
hesitates. (The husband had bet- 
ter find a chair; he has a long 
wait.) Of course, if the husband 
really wants to stay in the back- 
ground, the wife had damn well 
better make the decision herself 
(possibly to file for divorce on 
the grounds that she has married 
three cubic feet of nothing). But 
let's say neither husband nor 
wife dare take the initiative. In 
such a situation, a standard rule 
might be employed. The one hav- 
ing made the last decision must 
mtike thlsj one. In the event that 
there is some doubt as to who 
made the last move, an old chess 
rule might apply. When In doubt, 
don't mort. Of course, we must 
all move at one time or another. 
Not moving may become rather 
intolerable. And so, the static 
existence becoming rather in- 
tolerance indeed, husband and 
wife will once again move— at 
the same time and in a state of 
much confusion. Such a state 
(of confusion) is not uncommon 
between husband and wife. But 
unfortunately the science of 
marriage counseling has seen no 
conceptual breakthroughs in the 
study of this universal problem. 
I myself see it as a rather in- 
surmountable obstacle planted 
firmly in the way of orderly 
family decision making.

On Tuesday 

A course in fly-tying for per- 
sons with no previous experience 
in this hobby will be taught at 
the Student Union by Dr. R. 
Bruce Hoadley, Asst. Professor 
of Forestry and Wildlife Mgt., 
under sponsorship of the Student 
Union Activities Program. 

The class will consist of seven 
weekly sessions which will be 
held on Tuesday evenings from 
October 8 through November 19; 
each session will last approxi- 
mately from 7:00 to 9:30 p.m. 
Included in the course will be 
the basic principles and techni- 
ques in tying flies commonly 
used for trout and other fresh 



work for a special emphasis on 
programs and activities which 
would be culturally and estheti- 
cally enriching for the fraternity 
or sorority member, exploiting 
more fully the fraternity's poten- 
tial role as a cultural agent in 
the lives of members. 

The President of the Board of 
Regents establish a committee 
to study legal aspects of frater- 
nities and sororities being housed 
on University property, site loca- 
tion, site development, types of 
housing, methods of financing 
(including donations from frater- 
nity alumni), and the establish- 
ment of a time table for con- 
struction in order to determine 
the conditions under which fra- 
ternities and sororities could 
move on campus.

lecture period covering materials 
and methods will be followed by 
step-by-step instructions in tying 
representative patterns of each 
of the basic types of flies. 

It is hoped that students will 
rind it appealing and interesting. 

The class will be limited to 10 
people so it would be advisable 
to sign up early. Most equipment 
will be furnished. The only cost 
will be for feathers, hooks, and 
thread, a minimal amount.

Wesleyan "Clusters" Stress 
Liberal Advanced Study 



Middletown, Conn. (IP.) 
Wesleyan University is about to 
take a "bold and unique" step 
forward. As outlined in the Ad- 
ministration's recently released 
Interim Report on Long-range 
Plans, proposals center around a 
"move in the direction of ad- 
vanced study," a continuance of 
the trend towards "interdisciplin- 
ary" organiations within the 
University, and general growth. 

The presently existing subject 
departments would, under the re- 
port, lose emphasis in favor of 
"clusters" of related subjects, re- 
sulting in greater latitude and 
"cultural breadth" within the 
specific areas, while also giving 
the clusters greater autonomy 
within themselves. 



In addition to the clusters, a 
number of "programs" are also 
envisaged in the report. These 
would include the present col- 
lege plans, as well as, for ex- 
ample, programs in Latin Ameri- 
can Studies, Law and Society, 
Atomic Physics, and a Modern 
Language Center. 

The program for advanced 
learning, the report stipulates, 
should be one "that will 
strengthen the values and func- 
tioning of a liberal arts college." 
This means, the report explains, 
that Wesleyan would cultivate 
one or two areas of study by tak- 
ing on a few experts in the field, 
though cultural breadth is also 
stressed throughout the pro- 
posals, and building up an area 
of advanced study.

THE MASSACHUSETTS COLLEGIAN, FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 20, 1963 



Redmen Face Black Bears 



Maine Expected To Be 
Rugged Competition 



The University of Massachu- 
setts tangles with the University 
of Maine tomorrow afternoon in 
a game that has come to be the 
traditional gridiron opener for 
both schools. The contest; slated 
to begin at 1:30 p.m. at Alumni 
Field on the Maine campus in 
Orono, is also the first Yankee 
Conference encounter of the 
1963 season. 

This will be the tenth meeting 
between the Redmen from UMass 
and Maine's Black Bears. Mas- 
sachusetts holds the upper hand 
in the series with Maine, having 
won five while losing three and 
tying one. The last victory for 
UMass was a 10-0 shutout last 
fall. 

Since this will be the first test 
for both teams it is rather dif- 
ficult to predict what to expect 
from both camps when action 
gets underway tomorrow after- 
noon. Maine has a returning con- 
tingent of 18 lettermen and its 
starting squad is expected to be 
the same basic unit that slugged 
it out last season against the 
Redmen. UMass coach Vic Fusia 
views this Maine squad with re- 
spect. "This is almost the same 
unit that played us here last 
year and gave us trouble before 
we finally won. They have gained 
a years experience and maturity 
so their improvement will show." 

FI'SIA ADDED that he is 
planning his strategy on the 
basis of what Maine threw 
against UMass last year and the 
capacities of its returning per- 
sonnel. The Redmen are being 
geared to expect anything from 
the Black Bear Camp. 

Maine Coach Hal Westerman, 



AMPHEENOL 

FM

$5.00 AL 3-5253 



beginning his 13th year in that 
capacity at Orono, starts the sea- 
son with some good talent on 
hand although he does not have 
as many horses to turn to as 
does Vic Fusia. What he does 
have are six starters from last 
year plus 12 lettermen who can 
be expected to toughen up as 
the season wears on. 

Westerman's big problems are 
inexperience at the end, guard, 
and quarterback slots plus over- 
all depth. These are the cate- 
gories where the Redmen are 
about at their strongest in com- 
parison. At the tackle spots 
Westerman can breathe easier. 
He has big and tough Don Sever- 
son and Ernie Smith, both 230 
pounders. Maine center Phil 
Saule is also big and rates as one 
of the best in the Conference. 

The Maine halfback picture 
appears to be the strongest slots, 
Waterman having a string of ex- 
perienced veterans to call on. At 
fullbacks spot there are three 
lettermen hard at work to earn 
a starting role. At quarterback 
is a Sophomore that Maine will 
be putting a lot of stock in this 
year. He is Dick DeVarney whom 
Fusia sees as a possible trouble- 
maker against Conference foes, 
himself included. 

The starting unit Fusia plans 
to assemble tomorrow will be 
composed of mostly Juniors with 
only two seniors and one Sopho- 
more. Yet it is a squad that 
boasts of experience in almost all 
departments. Ten lettermen have 
been assigned starting roles. The 
only non-letterholding starter 
will be Sophomore left end Bob 
Meers. 

Senior co-captain Paul Gra- 
ham (235) will team up with 
Junior Bob Burke (225) at the 
tackles. Peter Pietz (210) a Jun- 
ior, and Bob Tedoldi (225), a 
Senior will be the starting 
guards. At center will be Charlie 
Scialdone (205), a Junior. The 
other end besides Meers (205) is

team spirit and attitude are out-

boys show to the squad, the

pleasure to coach this team." 

The Redmen left campus this

New Soph Advisor Campus Security Chief 

Warns About Parking 




President Bernle Dallas of the class of '66 Is pleased to announce 
that Dr. William Woman has accepted the position of Sopho- 
more class advisor. 



h> TERRY STOCK 

Cars, cart, everywhere, and 
not a parking space in sight. This 
is the problem that plagues Col- 
onel Marchant and his commis- 
sion of men who are trying to 
find room at UMass for some 
4,000 cars. 

Only a few parking areas re- 
main available for use, or do 
they? Within a month, construc- 
tion is due to get underway in 
three key parking lots. 

To make room for an engineer- 
ing annex between Goeasmann 
and the Main Engineering Build- 
ing, one-third of the North park- 
ing lot will be needed for con- 
struction work. Although Draper 
Drive will remain open and al- 
low a few faculty cars to park 
behind Draper, the North Pleas- 
ant Street entrance will be used 
exclusively for construction vehi- 
cles. Thus, only a small portion 
of the once accommodating 
North lot will remain open for 
parking. 



WFCR Plans 
More Local 
Programming 

by LEE MI LLAN'E 

WFCR, a 34.400 watt non- 
commercial educational FM 
radio station which serves the 
four colleges in this area. I'M, 
Amherst. Smith, and Mt. Hol- 
yoke, is forging ahead to provide 
listeners with top grade enter- 
tainment. This entertainment 
will take the form of music, dis- 
cussion? of imminent topics, and 
participation by musical mem- 
bers of the faculty of the four 
institutions. 

WFCR is also planning to ini- 
tiate series into the program- 
ming as well as recitals. 

The soon to transmit radio 
station will be on the air Mon- 
day through Saturday for one 
hour locally. The exact time will 
be officially announced. Much of 
the broadcasting will be done 
with the aid of the campus radios 
here at UMass. and at Mt. Hol- 
yoke. 

Originally, the studio, which 
is housed in the Education Build, 
ing, under the direction of Mr. 
Mostrianni, was limited to re- 
broadcasting programs from 
WGBH Boston. Although they 
will continue in this practice, the 
works of the four local colleges 
will be highlighted in an exten- 
sive local plan. 

In addition, WFCR is growing 
out from a local range as many 
of Its programs will be broad- 
cast and shared with FM sta- 
tions from WAMC Albany, to 
WHYY Philadelphia, and WAMU 
Washington, D.C. 

Although most of the plans 
are in the tentative stage, Mr. 
Mostrinnni reports that program- 
ming will begin as soon as the 
essential materia] is organized 
and prepared for broadcasting. 



Concert Association 
Gives Puccini's Tosca' 



The Goldovsky Grand Opera 
Theater will present a special 
English version of Giacomo Puc-

tion, will start at 8 p.m. in the 
Cage. 

Tickets and information are

West of Stockbridge Hall and 
between Chcnoweth and the Ag- 
ricultural Engineering Building 
is the site for a second construc- 
tion project which will force the 
closing of Bowker Drive. 

The third area prepared for 
construction is the lot between 
Fernald and the green houses off 
of Stockbridge Road. Here an ad- 
ditional dining commons will be 
built. This particular lot was 
once able to hold a great many 
automobiles, all of which must 
now be parked elsewhere. 

What will happen if cars are 
found parked in the wrong place 
at the wrong time? According 
to Col. Marchant, "All rules and 
regulation in the Automobile 
Regulation pamphlet will be 
strictly enforced. This includes 
the issuance of tickets and the 
use of towing procedures where 
the case indicates." 

Questioned extensively about 
the towing procedure to be used, 
it was discovered that no partic- 
ular garage received the towing 
contract. It seems that bids were 
sent out to various Amherst area 
garages before it was discovered 
that the Department of Public 
Utilities has a system whereby 
bids are unnecessary. 



The DPU regulates all com- 
mon route carriers or all vehicles 
transporting goods from one 
place to another. Since towing 
trucks do not have any specific 
route, they are classified as Ir- 
regular Common Route Carriers 
and can apply to the DPU for a 
certificate which registers their 
towing rates. 

Hence, UMass needed only ask 
each garage for their DPU rates. 
Since only two garages respond- 
ed, one of which is ineligible for 
towing until October 2, Carl An- 
derson will tow cars from UMass 
for the remainder of the month. 

Asked for an approximate cost 
for towing, Col. Marchant stated 
that not less than $4.00 nor more 
than $8.00 would be charged de- 
pending on the time of day, type 
of tow job, and distance from the 
garage. However, as the Auto- 
mobile Regulation booklet points 
out, a fee of up to $1.50 may be 
charged for storage for a twen- 
ty-four hour period. 

Hence, the only solution Col. 
Marchant could recommend at 
this time was that everyone co- 
operate and follow parking in- 
structions while UMass attempts 
to solve one of its major prob- 
lems—parking.

This year's $3.00 automobile 
registration fee. an increase of 
more than 48091 over last year's 
charge, has been the subject of 
wide-spread controversy on the 
University campus. Students and 
faculty alike want to know how 
approximately $9,300 in registra- 
tion fees is being spent, as well 
as why the University of Massa- 
chusetts now requires more min- 
imum insurance coverage than 
does the state. In a recent inter- 
view, Col. John Marchant USAF 
(Ret.) explained the advantages 
of "the new registration system," 
the cause of the rate increase, 
over the old system. 

Under the previous regirtra- 



tion system, metal tags were at- 
tached to all vehicles. These tags 
were not only easily transferred 
from one vehicle to another, but 
they were valid indefinitely. Con- 
sequently, many students and 
employees could continue to use 
the campus parking facilities af- 
ter having graduated or left their 
jobs. The decals being used under 
the new system, on the other 
hand, must be renewed yearly, 
thus eliminating a large number 
of unauthorized vehicles from the 
campus. 

Contrary to current specula- 
tion, these decals do not cost 
$3.00 each, nor is the registration 
money paying for the new park-

COLLEGE ADMISSION STANDARDS TOO NARROW 



Grinnell. la. (I.P.) — The cri- 
teria for student admissions are 
too narrow," states Dr. Howard 
Bowen, president of Grinnell Col- 
lege. "It is only a slight exag- 
eration to say that our admis- 
sions procedures are based over- 
whelmingly on a singularly nar- 
row dimension of personality 
and ability—skill in taking mul- 
tiple choice and other so-called 
objective tests. 

"A tyranny of numbers exists 
in American higher education to- 
day. When a student la admitted 
to one of our better colleges, It 
Is largely on the basis of three 



numbers— his scores on the ver- 
bal and qualitative portions of 
the College Board tests and his 
rank in his high school class. 

"No nonsense about his curi- 
osity, his moral fiber, his dreams 
and aspirations, his social con- 
sciousness, his human decency, 
his imagination, his philosophy 
of life, or his aesthetic senslbili- 
tes. These cannot be readily 

measured. 

"Colleges tend to regulate 
their activities accordingly. Ad- 
missions policy tends to be domi- 
nated by the need to have high 



average College Board scores for 
the record, counseling of seniors 
is affected by the desire to have 
a high proportion of graduates 
going on to advanced study for 
the record. In this pattern we 
are following there are several 
glaring weaknesses. 

"The atmosphere of college 
life is frenzied and filled with 
little deadlines. We do not 
achieve the calm necessary for 
serious, contemplative study, or 
essential for fruitful discussion, 
or needed if individuals are to be 
able to follow their interests. We 
tend to sacrifice qualitative ex- 



cellence for quantitative stand- 
ards. 

"The work of the student It 
scheduled in detail almost day 
to day with the result that he 
has little opportunity for Initia- 
tive and little responsibility to 
pursue hit own education 
through hit own interests. The 
system placet a premium on con- 
formity, on following instruc- 
tions, on meeting short-run as- 
signments. 

"This It true to the unbeliev- 
able extent that it It rare for a 
atudent to read or write except 
In response to assignments."

The Fraternity Issue --Early Rushing 



by J. I) WIDOW and G. MASSELAM 

The intention of this comment is not to 
hurt or hinder fraternities or fraternity life 
on this campus. Fraternities and sororities 
can have a positive role. They aid in the 
student's adjustment to campus life. They 
can aid socially and may even be helpful in- 
tellectually. Tney can result in the develop- 
ment of strong friendships. 

The question of acclimation is raised 
when the freshman joins a Greek group. The 
freshman has to develop a "feel" of the 
campus before he can decide whether he 
wants to go fraternity. Under the present 
rushing program, before he has had this 
time to develop a "feel" of the campus, to 
understand its purpose, his purpose in it, he 
is drawn into the quickening life of his fra- 
ternity. The end result is isolation. His life 
is so organized that it will be difficult to take 
the whole campus into perspective. His life 
becomes Greek. This is fine as long as he has 
seen all the elements of campus life. Frater- 
nities are a big step for freshmen involving 
the whole four years of his college career. 
It is very important that the freshman un- 
derstands the fraternity and knows what he 
wants. We don't feel that this opportunity 
under the early rushing will be afforded. It 
must be afforded however, for the well-being 
of the freshmen. 

Early rushing does not cause stability 
for the rushee. Rather it encourages instabil- 
ity, since the freshman has to make a major 
decision before he has settled down to Uni- 
versity life. Also the pace that is demanded 
of the rushee is intense. 

But what about academics? The early 
rushing adds more to his schedule when he 
needs time. Time to reflect and understand 
happenings. There certainly is enough hap- 
pening for the first month of college without 
rushing. He needs to develop his study hab- 
its. Even though there will be many in a 
fraternity who will help him he must ulti- 
mately do it alone, and this requires time. 

One of the central points of fraternities 
is brotherhood. Will this be hindered by 
early rushing? There will be little time to 
get to know who is rushing and who is being 
rushed. Decisions will be quick, friendships 
thin. Many will make wrong decisions. Judg- 
ments will be off. The whole pattern of early 
rushing has to be superficial ; for there is no 
time for depth. Depth in making friends. 
Depth in viewing fraternities. Depth in the 
fraternities viewing the rushees. 

Thus our fear is that rushees will suffer. 
They will loose a thorough and complete ac- 
climation. They will loose academically. 
Their confusion will be increased. Both fra- 
ternities and pledges will suffer brotherhood 
in depth. We urge the freshman not to make 
a hasty or irrational decision, until they have 
grasped the meaning of being a student and 
becoming educated. 

We urge the freshmen to consider what 
they want. 

TO ALL FRESHMEN, SOPHOMORES, 
JUNIORS & SENIORS: 

Do you have something to say 
which has been pent up in you 
for years? The Editorial Staff will 
have a meeting Tuesday, Sept. 24, 
1963 at 7:00 p.m. in the Collegian 
Office.

RED SKIES AND DARK BIRDS 

Some time ago, when the sky was its evening red and 
birds flew south in dark silhouettes, we stopped on the way 
to the Library and watched. The sky slowly changed colors. 
Clouds straggled by, red in the setting sun. It was then that 
we were transported from the world of the library, test 
and class, from the world of the organizations. 

— Some may call it escapism and laugh. We call it a 
way of perception and do not laugh. — 

This world of which we spoke is our world. Indeed it 
is so much our world that sometimes it wraps itself around 
us, cornering every nook of our minds. So tightly does it 
wrap itself around us that no longer can we even see it. We 
stumble on in the dark valleys of this world without seeing 
its white capped mountains. 

It is then that we should look at red skies and dark 
birds, each of us choosing his own skies, his own dark sil- 
houettes of birds. And after we look, after this, we can turn 
back to our world, cut through its blinding wraps, and ad- 
just ourselves to its importance, relative to ourselves and 
to worlds beyond. 

— Red skies and dark birds offer us this way of per- 
ception. — 

Open Letter To The Editor 

An Open Letter to Students and Faculty Members: 

The remarks of Mr. Mathieson, senate member, and 
campus chief Blasko Thursday night, have left grave ques- 
tions of doubt in my mind. Mr. Mathieson blasts the school 
administration's housing policy as M ill-conidered," and ex- 
plains the crowded living conditions in most dorms. Would 
Mr. Mathieson DENY college students a college education, 
because of lack of dormitory space, in dorms built TEN 
years ago at least, and for much fewer students? I think 
not! The condition, however grave, does not benefit by the 
senator reading "statistics" when these "statistics" are re- 
ceiving a good college education at a wonderfully equipped 
institution. Mathiesons redundant remarks against school 
policy are uncalled for. 

Let us agree with him only in placing the blame on 
those who have failed to complete signed contract agree- 
ments, and leave the housing administration alone. When 
one signs a contract one is expected to fulfill its obligations. 
The administration is free of guilt. 

Let us Worry, not at housing policy, but at the worried 
remarks of chief Blasko, Hlasko warns of "riots, state 
police, auxiliary police, and the use of force." If this is 
marked as the inevitable, let him continue to he so outspok- 
en in his fears of "mass" uprisings. The college student does 
not need to listen to the shaky words of terrible things to 
come. The problem is fully understood. Rather Mr. Hlasko. 
continue to look calmh and wisely, and keep your fears to 
yourself. The college student realizes the predicament. A 
show of "Bull Conner" force is not needed. Hold your dogs 
back ! 

Kenneth Feinberg '67 



(Ed. Note. The Collegian has asked Steve Gray, 
Pn sidcnt of IFC to urite an analysis of early rush- 
ing, in order to piTSent a fair appraisal of this 
policy.) 

This year, the Interfraternity Council has 
instituted a rushing system which allows 
freshmen to be pledged and initiated by the 
UMass social fraternities during the first 
semester of their freshman year. The ad- 
vantages of this system are numerous, both 
to the freshmen and to the fraternities. 

The IFC, in selecting this system, was 
most concerned with developing a strong 
scholastic program for all fraternities. Al- 
though the All-fraternity average is consis- 
tently higher than the all-men's average at 
UMass, a prime objective of all fraternities 
is to improve the scholastic ability and per- 
formance of the members. Towards this end, 
the fraternity system has included in the 
1963 rushing rules provisions for a mini- 
mum study hall requirement for all pledges. 
The supervised study program is mandatory 
in all fraternities, but is meant to comple- 
ment existing scholarship programs, rather 
than replace present methods. Through this 
new study hall program, the fraternity sys- 
tem hopes to strengthen fraternity scholar- 
ship. 

The most common argument in favor of 
delayed rushing has been that the freshmen 
need time to "get adjusted" to campus and 
college life, to "get to know their way 
around." After a highly succesful first se- 
mester rushing program in 1962, the IFC 
realized that the best place for freshmen to 
"get adjusted" to campus is in a fraternity, 
where the size of the group (40-80 men) and 
the individual attention which the pledge re- 
ceives provides a "second home" for the 
freshman. 

Through the new system, freshmen who 
choose to join fraternities will be initiated 
far sooner than in previous years. The men 
will become integral parts of their frater- 
nities in their freshman year, "knowing" 
the house and the fraternity system. The 
fraternities will have the added members 
to enter into, and assist with, the various 
house activities during the year. 

The UMass fraternities, through their 
representatives of the Interfraternity Coun- 
cil, have shown their desire to present fra- 
ternity membership to all college men, re- 
gardless of their year of graduation. From 
this desire has come the new rushing system. 

GORVINE AND THE WALL 

To the Editor: 

Mr. Gorvines article on the German problem 
shows his basic naivete and lack of realism in in- 
ternational politic* He fails to understand the real 
menace to freedom loving peoples of the world is 
the Communist menace. Yes it is true the Germans 
killed six million in their gas chambers, but now 
they are our friends (The good Germans that is, 
the bad Fast Germans are still our enemies* Yes, 
it is true the Germans themselves chose Hitler 
oyer democracy but now they are freedom loving. 
Yes it is true, the Germans have a long history of 
militarism but now a rearmed Germany promotes 
the security Of the world by containing: the Rus- 
sians. Yes. perhaps it is even true many war crim- 
inals arc free and even in the Adenauer government 
but we should ntmcmbtr our Judaic-Christian heri- 
tagl and forgive our enemies. 

For dramatic proof of these arguments one has 

to look no further than the infamous Berlin Wall. 
Here we have Germans who have never reallv 
known frttdom in 1000 years of history risking 
<l. ith to enter the "Free World." Wc as patriotic 
Americans should stand behind our leaders in the 
Free World." Chiang Kai-shek. Ngo Din Diem, 
and Francisco Franco. And with God and the Ger- 
man s help we will defeat the terrible Russians.

New Programs And Folk Sing Held In S. U. 

Equipment At WMUA 



by NANCY FOGG 

This year, WMUA, the campus 
radio station, has incorporated 
several new programs into its 
schedule. Among these are a bloc 
of educational programs, includ- 
ing lectures on History 5 and 6, 
and English 25 and 26. "Impulse" 
will return with a new format. 
Many interesting topics to be an- 
nounced at a later date, will be 
discussed by different professors 
and political figures. "Music of 
the World,*' a show done in sev- 
eral languages, will be broadcast 
on Mondays and alternate 
Thursdays. 

The following new programs 
will occupy the 7 to 8 o'clock 
lime slot: Sundays, History 5; 
Mondays, "Music of the World"; 
Tuesdays, English 25 and a half- 
hour sports program; Wednes- 
days, English 26. with "Meet the 
Professor" at 7:45; Thursdays, 
"Impulse," alternating with "Mu- 
sic of the World." 

"Night Shift," (changed from 
"Swinging Safari,") will return 
from midnight to 2 a.m. A Sat- 
urday night folk music show, 
called "Standing Room Only," 
will be presented from 10 p.m. 
- 1 a.m. "Coffee on Campus" can 
now be heard from 7-10 p.m. 

The new equipment acquired 
over the summer amounts to ap- 
proximately "59,700. , to be paid 
off in a three-year period. The 
money was appropriated from a 
loan by the Student Senate, and 
it comes out of the student tax 
money. Now the equipment is 
student owned. 



The more versatile and better 
quality equipment includes: a 
Collins transmitter and control 
board, which can bring in four 
different remotes at the same 
time; facilities to broadcast over 
five microphones simultaneously; 
three new turntables; and an 
Ampex tape recorder, to be used 
for interviews, etc. 

Regular program hours will be 
in effect on Monday, from 7-10 
a.m., and also from 4:30 p.m. - 2 
a.m. On Sunday, the hours are 
from 9 a.m. - 2 a.m.

ing signs on campus. It is being 
used to defray the operating 
costs of the registration process 
only. This includes procurement 
of registration stickers, as well 
as the cost of part-time tempo- 
rary services during registration, 
the printing of traffic regula- 
tions, registration information 
and registration cards, and the 
procurement of special supplies 
used solely for the registration 
of vehicles. Moreover, the assign- 
ment of cars to definite lots al- 
lows police to note where repairs 
and changes in parking facilities 
are necessary. 

The system being used up to 
now was devised for a small 
campus population. As it proved 
inadequate, a study of systems 
was conducted at fifteen compar- 
able institutions of higher learn- 
ing. Advice was solicited from

the Security Directors. From this 
data, the present system was de- 
vised and the $3.00 fee, approved 
by President Lederle, estab- 
lished. The universities involved 
in the survey included the fol- 
lowing: 

Institution Reg. Fee 

U. of Illinois $15.00 

(2nd car 5.00) 
U. of Kansas 4.00 

U. of Maine 1.00 

U. of Michigan staff 25.00 

plus park. met. students 7.00 
U. of North Carolina 2.50 

U. of North Dakota 2.00 

Stanford U. 10.00 

Oklahoma State U. 10.00 

Furthermore, the parking at 
these universities is in general 
lots and based on a first come 
first serve basis. Where reserved 
parking is available, additional 
fees are involved. 

To register a car under the 
new system, additional insurance 
coverage is required in many in- 
dividual cases. Because Massa- 
chusetts compulsory insurance 
covers vehicles only on public 
highways, it does not extend to 
the privately owned roads of this 
campus. To protect drivers on 
campus, therefore, adequate cov- 
erage is geing required. 

Col. Marchant commented that 
every effort has been made to 
keep direct costs of the registra- 
tion system to a minimum and 
that no increase in fees is an- 
ticipated in the foreseeable fu- 
ture.

Fraternities Start Rushing 




le Fine 



Open Smokers /. F. C. Rushing Convocation 



Fraternities will be holding 
Open Smokers during the week 
of September 23. These smokers 
provide an opportunity for fresh- 
men to meet the members of all 
fraternities and to discuss the 
fraternities with the brothers. 
Smokers are accompanied by a 
more relaxed atmosphere than 
is to be found in other functions 
which freshmen may attend. 

Fraternity men welcome all 
interested men who wish to 
attend, and will attempt to 
answer any questions concern- 
ing their specific fraternity, or 
the fraternity system. Dates and 
times of each house's smokers 
will be announced by means of 
posters in the men's dormitories. 
The Interfraternity Council en- 
courages all interested men to 
attend as many smokers as pos- 
sible, in order to meet men from 
a number of houses. 



The Interfraternity Council 
Rushing Convocation, held Wed.. 
Sept. IS. was attended by ap- 
proximately 350 enthusiastic 
freshmen. Steve Graham. IFC 
Rushing Chairman, welcomed 
the freshmen. The program was 
highlighted by round-table dis- 
cussions, consist ig of 8-10 fresh- 
men and a representative of the 
Interfraternity Council. The IFC 
representative answered ques- 
tions concerning fraternity life 
posed by the freshmen. Many of 
the men had attended the IFC 
Dorm Discussions the previous 
evening, and had numerous ques- 
tions concerning the Information 
presented at these discussions. 

The main consideration at the 
annual Rushing Convocation is 
to inform the freshmen as to the 
part which fraternities play on a 
college campus, and, especially, 
on the UMass campus. 



MOTORCADE INVADES 
HARVARD SATURDAY 



Redmen followers will have 
the opportunity to invade John 
Harvard's territory in force Sat- 
urday by joining an Adelphia 
s|xmsored motorcade to Harvard 
Stadium. 

Adelphian Jim Medeiros, who 
is in charge of the motorcade, 
has placed a signup sheet in the 
RSO office for car owners who 
will make the trip. 

As of today several fraterni- 
ties have engaged buses that will 
join the assault on Cambridge. 



Adelphia president Dave 
Clancy announced that if enough 
names were placed on the sign- 
up sheets by persons without 
transportation, the senior men's 
society would arrange bus serv- 
ice at low cost. 

The proposed starting time for 
the motorcade is 10:30 a.m. Sat- 
urday. 

I 'Mass' last meeting with the 
Crimson in 1961 resulted in a 
stunning 27-12 Redmen win.

Grant Brings Big 
Wind To Engineers 



A National Science Founda- 
tion grant of $10,000, which will 
be supplemented by $11,000 in 
matching funds by the Univer- 
sity, has been awarded to the 
University's department of 
mechanical engineering, Presi- 
dent John W. Lederle an- 
nounced Friday. 

The grant will be administered 
by John H. Dittfach, professor 
of mechanical engineering, and 
will provide for the purchase of 
advanced equipment for instruc- 
tion of undergraduate students 
in "compressible fluid flow." 

Prof. Dittfach said that the 
equipment, which includes a 
supersonic wind tunnel capable 
of flow velocities of four times 
the speed of sound (Mach 4.0), 
is designed "to illustrate prin- 
ciples in thermodynamics, fluid 



mechanics, and internal combus- 
tion engines." 

According to Prof. Dittfach, 
progress and developments in the 
aeronautic and astronautic fields 
in the past ten years clearly 
dictate that more attention must 
be focused on the compressible 
flow area. 

In addition to the supersonic 
wind tunnel, the grant will pro- 
vide for purchase of a subsonic 
wind tunnel for study of air flow 
at relatively low velocities, and a 
hot wire turbulence anemometer 
for analysis of air flow particles 
around surfaces. 

A faculty member at the Uni- 
versity for 15 years, Prof. Ditt- 
fach holds Bachelor of Science 
and a Master of Science Degrees 
in Mechanical Engineering from 
the University of Minnesota.

10 MILES A DAY 



Harriers In Training 



by GENE COLBl RN 

THE VARSITY CROSS 
COUNTRY TEAM, led by Cap- 
tain "Digger" Brouillet, has been 
averaging 10 miles a day in their 
workouts. Digger, as expected, 
has been out in front, and seems 
even stronger this year. 

Bob Ramsey and Tom Panke, 
both juniors, have shown great 
improvement over their per- 
formances last year. Ramsey is 
running exceptionally well, and 
is the number 2 man on the 
team. Al McPhail, returning 
after a year's absence, has pro- 
vided a strong boost to the 
team's strength. McPhail and 
Panke, along with sophomore 
Bob Molvar, are waging a tight 
battle for the next three posi- 
tions, there is no telling what 
the order will be by Saturday, 
when the Redmen open their sea- 
son. 

Following close on these boys' 
heels is a group led by senior 
Gene Colburn and sophomore 
Bob Larson. Larson is having 
trouble with his legs, but once 
they are all right, he should im- 
prove. Ron Oakland and Don 
Campfield should combine to 
give the team strong depth. 

COACH FOOTRICK is aiming 
for the Yankee Conference 

Championship for an unprece- 
dented fourth straight time, as 
well as a strong finish in the 



New England championship and 
a trip to the IC4A's. Although 
the coach has not said said any- 
thing, the chances for a perfect 
season are good. 

The toughest meet on the 
schedule will be a triangular 
meet with Maine and North- 
eastern. The Redmen have not 
beaten the Bears by more than 
7 points in this meet, and N.E. 
looks like it will have a really 
strong team also. Other meets 
that will be tough will be ones 
with Providence College and 
Springfield College. Providence 
has shown steady improvement 
the last few years and will be 
the dark horse in the New Eng- 
land Championships. The Red- 
men have not been able to beat 
Springfield for the last three 
years, but this year should put 
an end to the Maroon's string. 

The meet with Providence will 
be a quadrangular meet includ- 
ing B.U. and UConn also, and 
both are capable of filling the 
role of spoiler. Central Connecti- 
cut has the best cross-country 
runner in the East, and one of 
the best in the country in Jim 
Keefe. Keefe has won the New 
Englands for the last two years, 
and this past summer was a 
member of the American track 
team that traveled to Russia. 
This year's cross country is shap- 
ing into one of the best ever, and 
only time will tell.

Army Overcomes Booters 
\s Soccer Season Opens 



by SCOTT FREEDLAND 
HAMPERED BY INJURIES 

and inexperience a determined 
UMass varsity soccer team was 
unable to follow a spectacular 
first half before a crowd of five 
hundred. 

The Army immediately began 
putting the pressure on. Fine de- 
fensive work by fullback Ray 
Yando broke up two attacks by 
Army's outside left Jose Gon- 
zales. All attempts to drive 
Army from the UMass end failed 
as Gonzales (Costa Rica), Rohas 
(Costa Rica), and Elvas (Hon- 
duras) kept driving the attack 
forward only to have it broken 
up by All-American Dick Repeta, 
goalie Dick Phillips, and fullback 
Roy Yando. Right wing Mike 
Zanrotny on a pass from the 
UMass halfback line drove 
around the Army defense to have 
goalie Ekland make a last second 
save which he dropped but fell 
on before a second shot could be 
made. Zanrotny connected on a 
pass from Yando only to have 
the West Point goalie dive on it 
again to end spectacularly de- 
fensive first period. 

AS THE SECOND QUARTER 
opened the UMass booters seemed 
to come to life. Outside left 
Tom Astoldi shot from outside 
after faking the Cadets goalie 
out of position only to have it go 
high. West Point took the pre- 
caution of passing the ball to 
their goalie to clear it with a 
downfield boat Mike Zanrotny 
and Center Forward Pat Mc- 
Devitt brought the UMass attack 
through the West Point defense 
to have the Cadet goalie make 
the save in a dive which sprained 
his shoulder. Play started to 
toughen as tripping and pushing 
were called on the Booters and 
West 1'oint respectively. In the 
last moments of the first half 
Army's Hugh Elvas pressed the 
attack, to be repeatedly stopped 
by goalie Dick Phillips. 

Redmen Down . . . 

(Continued from page 67 
goal from the 25 but the try was 
smothered by hard charging 
tcckle Bob Tedoldi. 

IN THE FINAL and decisive 
period UMass dominated the of- 
fensive play. They were on their 
way to a touchdown when on 
third and 5 at the Maine 16 
Whelchel saw Austin steal an- 
other of his passes, this one at 
the five. Austin was bowled over 
immediately and four downs 
later Maine was forced to kick, 
the Redmen taking over at the 
Mains 10 with 5:33 left to play. 

Jerry Whelchel, Fred Lewis, 
Bob Ellis and Ken Palm took 
turns carrying and brought the 
ball to the 7 where UMass had 
a first and goal to go. A back- 
field in motion i>enalty put 
I'Miiss back on the 12. Palm 
bulled his way forward to the 
4 and on the next play Whelchel 
went off-tackle for the winning 
score and added the extra point. 

IF ONE LOOKED AT THE 
STATISTICS for the game it 
would appear that UMass had 
Miter sailing than they did. The 
Redmen total offense was 310 
\ards, 205 by rushing and 105 
via air. Maine logged 129 yards 
in the air but was held to minus 
46 yards on the ground for a 
das's total offense of S3 yards. 

In the pMttni department, 
Dick DeVarney set a record for 
complete passes In a game by 
I Maine player. He surpassed the 
old record of 14 by hitting on 16 
of 24 attempted. Whelche! and 
John Schroeder combined to 



Following the scoreless first 
half the Army depth proved deci- 
sive. Combinations of Gonzales 
and Bonavic from the corner was 
the undoing of the UMass boot- 
ers despite Kevin Lyons and Pat 
McDevitt's lone run for the goal. 
Gonzales, driving around the 
tired, injured fullback line, 
scored early in the period. The 
goal was nullified for a foul. 
Gonzales and Bonavic capitalized 
on a corner kick and a head 
twice in five minutes. At 2-0 
Army, UMass, scoring on Dick

Leete's penalty kick, pulled off 
the only goal for the Redmen 
booters. Late in the period Gon- 
zals got his third assist for the 
fourth goal of the period. 

The Redmen kept Army to one 
goal in the fourth period, (Gon- 
zales) but were unable to push 
through the always tough Army 
defense. 

NEXT WEEK the Redmen will 
attempt to avenge themselves 
against the Coast Guard Mid- 
shipmen on UMass home field. 
Game time is 2 p.m.

writer is not something you find 
around campus every day, I'd 
like you all to feel fortunate and 
proud to have such a writer on 
your very own campus Collegian

drawbacks, as I don't know quite 
as much about sports as most of 
the other sports writers. With 
this in mind I decided not to 
cover the games as an actual 
sports reporter but to find a new 
angle of approach. Webster pro- 
vided me with a few fundament- 
als and with this valuable in- 
formation tucked away I eagerly 
went down to the soccer field to 
await the start of the game. 

For the first half of the game I 
sat there completely engrossed 
in the action on the field except 
for momentary interruptions 
when I slid a few feet down the 
side of the steep hill I was sit- 
ting on. During half-time I just 
happened to slide into the midst

THE SECOND HALF OF 
THE GAME was even more in- 
teresting than the first, thanks 
to the able instruction that these 
midshipmen provided. It seems 
that next week-end UMass is 
playing the Coast Guard here 
and these were the advance 
scouts. They stated that UMass 
looked much better than they 
had expected and made a fine 
showing against Army. After a 
scoreless first half the lack o( 
depth in the UMass team was 
shown as Army put in a fresh 
team and scored four goals in

around right end to the 24. On 
third and one, Palm knifed for- 
ward to the 21 and a first down. 
On the next carry he ended up 
at the Maine 7 for another first 
d(,wn. Mike Ross and Whelchel 
carried to the two in the next 
two plays. Palm slid in off tackle 
for the score with less than six 
minutes left in the half. Whel-

point after. 

MAINE CAME CLOSE to go-

when a UMass fumble gave them 
the ball on the Mass nine Some 
of the pressure was relieved by 
John Hudson who nailed De-

KEN PALM led all runners in 
the game with 65 yards on 11 
carries, including on TD. Fred

picked up 51 yards. 

The Redmen line proved itself 



tough on more than one occa- 
sion as Maine's rushing total 
would indicate. Paul Graham 
and Pete Pietz with Bob Tedoldi 
stopped a number of Maine backs 
cold. Bob Meers, John Hudson,

plays in the Maine backfield on 
several vital plays.

Redmen Down Black Bears 14-7 

UMass Finds Season 
Opener Rough Going 



by STEVE HEW*.!' '64 
THE UNIVERSITY OF 'MAS- 
SACHUSETTS, pre-game two 
touchdown favorite, found beat* 
ing Maine a tougher chore than 
expected and had to put together 
touchdowns in the late minutes 
of each half for its come from 
behind, 14-7 win over the Maine 
Black Bears at Orono. 

Maine ended a Redmen scor- 
ing threat in the first few min- 
utes of play when defensive half- 
back Ray Rustin made an end- 
zone interception of a Jerry 
Whelchel pass and returned it to 
the 26 yard line of Maine. From 
there sophomore quarterback 
Dick DeVarney, playing his first 
varsity game, began a brilliant 
passing show that amazed the 
5,000 spectators at UMaine's 
Alumni Field. 

DEVARNEY FIRED 10 passes 
through the Redmen defenses, 
eight of them finding the mark 
during the 18 play, 74 yard drive. 



The 5'9" DeVarney finished the 
march with a sneak from the one 
foot line. Dick Baucher added 
the extra point to give Maine a 
7-0 first period edge. 

The game started on a shaky 
footing for the Redmen as 
Maine's opening kickoff was 
cuffed around by Fred Lewis at 
the 6 and Lewis himself tackled 
on the one. Jerry Whelchel and 
halfback Phil DeRose worked the 
ball forward to the Redmen 11 
for a first down. Whelchel threw 
to end John Hudson who was 
pushed by a Maine defender. In- 
terference was called and the 
Redmen had a first down on the 
Mass 45. 

WHELCHEL WENT TO THE 
AIR again with two tosses to 
6'3" end Bob Meers, the second 
of which Meers lugged into the 
endzone for an apparent touch- 
down. A clipping violation at the 
three yard line cancelled the 
score and UMass was assessed 



15 yards back to the 18. Two 
plays later came the Austin in- 
terception. That set up Maine's 
TD. UMass saw another scoring 
bid evaporate in the first quar- 
ter when Dick Baucher picked 
off a Whelchel pass that had 
bounced from the hands of Red- 
men end Roger DeMinico the 
Maine 26. 

In the second quarter De- 
Varney did not find the going so 
easy. On several occasions hard 
charging Redmen linemen led by 
Bob Meers set him on the seat 
of his pants. With Maine's chief 
threat temporarily subdued, 
UMass got rolling for its first 
score. Halfback Ken Palm, the 
Redmen's most impressive run- 
ner of the day, started the gears 
winding by returning Maine's 
punt from the Bear's 47 to the 
33. 

A delay of game penalty vs. 
Maine pushed the ball ahead to

UM Needs Scholars 
For 'College Bowl 9 



by DAVE HARACZ 

History, literature, philosophy, 
the sciences, current events, mu- 
sic, art, mythology, the Bible . . . 
just about anything that the col- 
lege student may be expected to 
have picked up along the aca- 
demic road, these are the sub- 
jects of the questions of Gener- 
al Electric's weekly "College 
Bowl." 

This year, after considerable 
effort on the part of Mr. William 
Deminoff. head of the Universi- 
ty News Service, UMass will 
compete on November 24 against 
representatives of another school 
in the popular clash of minds 
over a national TV network. 

Before UMass can send its 
squad of scholars to do mental 
battle, preliminary "jousts" must 
be staged here to determine 
those best suited for the show. 
Dr. Albert Medeira of the Eng- 
lish department and Daniel Mel- 



ley of the News Office are in 
charge of selecting students for 
the show. 

Selection will be by competi- 
tion similar to that on the show 
itself, using questions supplied 
as models by the show. Dr. Me- 
deira points out that it is not 
necessary to be Phi Beta Kappa 
to compete, but that it is far 
more important to have the abil- 
ity to retain details. Because the 
scoring on the show depends not 
only on accuracy but on speed 
of answering, it is also necessary 
that those selected be "quick on 
the trigger." 

Those interested in trying out 
for the show should contact ei- 
ther Dr. Medeira or Mr. Melley, 
or leave their names and ad- 
dresses in the "College Bowl" 
box at the rear of the Collegian 
office. Further details and de- 
velopments will be found in com- 
ing issues of the Collegian.

University String Orchestra 
Expands To Full Symphony 




Based on last Thursday's successful rehearsal, 
the I nlverslty of Massachusetts orchestra will 
be expanded into a symphony orchestra under 



the direction of Ronald Steele, shown here 
conducting the rehearsal. 



Although most are unaware 
of it, the beginning of a sym- 
phony orchestia has been or- 
ganized here at the University. 
The University Orchestra will 
begin its season with a rehears- 
al in Bartlett Auditorium to- 
night at 7:30. 

Based on last Thursday's suc- 
<«-sful rehearsal, the University 
of Massachusetts orchestra will 
be expanded into a full sym- 
phony orchestra under the direc- 



tion of Ronald Steele. 

He stated that while a lack 
of capable string instrument 
players is forcing him to go off 
campus for new members, he 
feels sure that qualified students 
at the University will step for- 
ward in he near future. 

Mr. Steele, a violinist and 
conductor, is a recent arrival at 
the University. A graduate of 
the University of Michigan, he 
is a former associate conductor 



Constutional Convention 
Discuss Senate Membership 



by KIAVIN McN A.MARA 

The first Constitutional Con- 
vention of the year will convene 
tomorrow at 7 p.m. in the Coun- 
cil Chaml>ers. All Senators and 
class officers are urged to be 
present. Senate President Jon 
Fife stated that the meeting, as 
are all Senate meetings, is open 
to the public. 

On the agenda for the conven- 
tion are two bills. The first, in- 
troduced by Senator Bill Dono- 
van '65 Commuter, would raise 
the number of Senators which 
could be alloted a given area. It 
would grant as a maximum, 8 *o 
a residential area having "more 
than 1125 residents." 

The second bill brings debate 
on 10 changes in the Student 
Gov e r nm e n t Association Consti- 
tution onto the floor Sponsored 
by the Constitutional Revisions 
Committee, the bill would, if 
pissed, bring the constitution 
more Up to date. 

The purjHise of the committee, 
according to its Chairman, Sen- 



ator Phil Howard ('64 Mills) is 
"to decide whether or not stu- 
dent government is adequate to 
serve the needs of the student 
body." 

The committee considered the 
establishment of a "President of 
the Student Body" which would 
be separate from that of Senate 
president. They found that it is 
not necessary at the present 
time, that the Senate president 
has fulfilled this duty in the past 
and will be able to fulfill it in 
the foreseeable future. 

One section of the bill woul I 
"legali/e" the Area Judiciary, 
which up until now, has been op- 
erating on what many Senators 
feel to be a shaky legal basis. 

Finally, the delegates wdl con- 
sider a bill which would limit the 
membership of the Senate to 65 
members. When the membership 
exc ee d! this number, a reappor- 
tionment will be held. As this 

bill is quite controversial, in all 

likelihood it will be tallied back 
to committee.

tra, a 150 piece group affiliated 
with the University. 

Mr. Steele said that the re- 
sponse to the first rehearsal was 
so enthusiastic that he will try 
o secure woodwind and brass 
musicians immediately. 

When established, the sym- 
phony will be the first assembled 
at the University. 

Interested musicians — stu- 
dents, faculty, or area residents 
—are asked to call Mr. Steele 
at the music department, Uni- 
versity. Vacancies exist for 
woodwind, brass and string in- 
strumentalists. 

Mr. Steele has invited all stu- 
dents who have string experi- 
ence to come to tonight's re- 
hearsal. 

The orchestra rehearses each 
Thursday at 7:30 p.m. in Bart- 
lett Auditorium.

The end of automobile regis-

PARTNERS NOT ANTAGONISTS MELANGE 



Extension And Non-extension 



by J. B. CIIILDS 

The spread of photographs which appeared in the Col- 
legian a short time ago showing the many faces of campus 
construction was indicative of the atmosphere of physical 
change which pervades the University. The University is 
to be congratulated for its effort to keep abreast of the flow 
of ever-increasing students. 

At the same time that this atmosphere of physical ex- 
tension occurs there also seems to exist an attitude of non- 
extension. As was pointed out by Iris Ann Decelles in her 
article about parking space, "Only a few parking areas re- 
main available for use ... . Within a month construction 
is due to get underway in key parking lots/* We do not deny 
the value of this construction to meet the needs of physical 
extension. The question we ask concerns the failure to ex- 
tend regulations to meet these new changes. 

The rules and regulations with regard to parking grew 
up in a time when there were "key parking lots" availabie. 
For good reasons those parking spaces are no longer avail- 
able. It would seem therefore that regulations in regard 
to parking should change along with the parking spaces. 

If it is expected that the student change old ways of 
campus living to meet new construction, new extension it 
would seem fair to expect a change in old regulations to 
also meet the new construction. 

Who Is Free? 

by MIKE ALIPHERES 

Who is free? You? I? Perhaps Cleve McDowell, James 
Meredith, or the four children killed in the Birmingham 
bombing or any of the Negroes murdered for the cause of 
integration; but are human beings free when they are 
forced to depend upon military troops to insure their ad- 
mittance into public schools, state universities or public 
facilities; and furthermore to protect them from the vio- 
lence of southern demagogues who feed on the evil and 
hatred in narrow-minded and bigoted whites? 

The American Negro is a victim of hypocrisy. Indeed 
the entire issue of integration and race equality is an illus- 
tration of the flagrant inconsistencies of a political system 
which advocates civil liberty and freedom, but in reality 
fails to sustain the most basic of all truths, that of equal 
human rights. 

In order to understand fully the cause of the race crisis, 
one must examine closely the fears of the southern white 
people. They realize that the Negro race exposed to the same 
education as the white race is a potential and economic 
power bloc. They know that in a competitive society the 
educated majority, which in many instances in the South 
would be the Negro populace, controls through suffrage 
power and the influences of government. The southern white 
are afraid that they will lose the political and economic ab- 
solutism that they have enjoyed for the past two hundred 
years. This basic fear of economic insecurity is the deep- 
est root of race antagonism, and, we believe, of all human 
conflict and suffering. A nation which fails to grant econom- 
ic security to all of its citizens fails to attain two of life's 
fundamental freedoms: freedom from want and freedom 
from fear. 

In a society which forces human beings to compete for 
a living, predominant characteristics originate only from 
the desire of material security and gain. The most signifi- 
cant of these is the exploitation of man by man (hence 
slavery, segregation, and the class system). Only a system 
which eliminates this exploitation by establishing economic 
security will create a climate for personal, cultural and re- 
ligious freedom, a climate in which every human being re- 
gardless of race or color may develop all of his capabilities. 

SICK AND TIRED? 



r 



by JOAN <\ sill ST A 

Recently, 1 asked a Columbia undergraduate how he 
felt about the Negro movement for civil rights. "Oh," he 
said, "I think it's all very admirable, but don't you get sick 
and tired of always hearing about it?" 

Are you sick and tired of being inundated with news- 
casts featuring Alabama and Mississippi, Wallace and Bar- 
nett, firehoses -and bloodhounds? Were you disappointed 
that the March on Washington monopolized television chan- 
nels for a day? And now that you have returned to the Uni- 
versity from summer vacation, do studies and parties and 
Hatch dates push the disturbing thought of social justice 
from your mind? 



by SANDRA Bl RL1NGAME 

The world situation of today is generally thought of 
as the struggle between two powers whose ideologies are 
vastly different and incapable of being reconciled. On the 
contrary, the objectives of the United States and Russia 
are very similar. Each doctrine professes belief in the idea 
that man can live a happy life free from poverty and mis- 
ery if the ideal is achieved. In the Soviet Union, this ideal 
would be a communist state where each man would receive 
an equal share of the wealth of the state; in America, the 
hope of eliminating bad conditions in order to give every 
man a chance for a comfortable life goes along with the 
idea of liberty and equality, for the purpose of rights of the 
individual is to give everyone a fair chance to make of his 
life what he wishes, which would presumably be a life with- 
out suffering. 

The thought that Communists are terrible monsters 
because of the methods they use to spread their belief is 
likewise a fallacious idea, unless of course you would call 
the actions of the United States in the taking of Texas, 
Florida, and California from our neighbors during our per- 
iod of imperialism the acts of monsters. It may be argued, 
however, that because this is the twentieth century, what 
was once allowed to happen is no longer permitted. But the 
vehement belief of the Communists that they must spread 
their ideas or the world will forever live in error forces them 
to do things otherwise unthought-of. Communism is a re- 
ligion to them, and like religious people throughout the 
world, they believe it is their duty to spread belief in the 
"one true way of life." 

If you, the student, are a strong Catholic, Protestant, 
or Jew, are you content to know that other people are con- 
tinually mistaken in their ideas and unhappy because of it? 
Wouldn't you rather have them know the truth in order to 
live life correctly? The difference between you and a Com- 
munist is that he will use violent action to bring about what 
he considers the ultimate good of Communism. If there were 
not strong faith in the benefits this system could bring to 
everyone, the infiltration of Communism throughout many 
parts of the world today would be brought to a standstill. 

The fight for men's minds has never been an easy one 
and we now find ourselves in the midst of a struggle be- 
tween two peoples, both striving for the same goal — the 
betterment of mankind — but proceeding by totally different 
methods. The irony of this situation is that instead of work- 
ing together, they are enemies in the tense Cold War. It is 
time to begin to use all our energies to see that Russia and 
the United States become partners instead of antagonists. 
Perhaps the Nuclear Test Ban and the proposed union of 
resources for a joint moon shot will be steps along the way 
to world peace. Only time will tell. 

ME, MADNESS, HUMOR 

Taxation Without Representation 

by MIKE HENCH 

In keeping with the traditions established for the Student Vio- 
lence Coordinating Committee, namely those traditions drawn out of 
America's past, it is time to examine various "fees" and "taxes" im- 
posed upon us who honor the University with our presence. 

There is little doubt that we are taxed by the state in order to 
pay a part of our tuition. And perhaps the state does need the extra 
$100 or so that we pay directly in tuition. (Indeed we are surprised 
when, after examining the fiscal responsibility of this state, we pay 
so little.) 

Nevertheless, there are several other "fees" and "taxes" im- 
posed on that seditious piece of paper known as The Semester Bill. 
Let us examine these. 

We pay an activities tax. We are represented by the Senate. 

We pay a Student Union Fee. We are ostensibly represented by 
a body known as The Student Union Governing Board. But it is w?U

Although you may be in favor of civil rights for all, 
perhaps you are just plain bored by the intrustion of this 
issue upon your microcosmic life as a college student. If so, 
you can thrust it out of your psychological existence; you 
can sit back in your library or Hatch chair and forget that 
four little girls died, unsuspecting martyrs to the cause of 
integration. Yes, you can run from this boredom — you can 
run right back to University-style boredom. In this country, 
waiting for your active championship, is a ready-made 
cause. But — people of my generation — if you want to re- 
main bored and boring, don't get involved. Just skim the 
headlines— and throw away your newspaper after you have 
smashed your radio.

Homicide 

by STEVE ORLEN 

History informs us it is 
as old as civilization itself. 
It began as a primitive re- 
taliation, a necessary re- 
course, a natural instinct, 
some time after Cain got 
away with murder. It began 
rather crudely, an eye for an 
eye, the Bible says. Over the 
centuries it evolved, became 
more polished when the 
Church took it over, more 
ingenius when the Chinese 
started to play with it, more 
thorough with the Nazis, un- 
til finally it was refined into 
an art. Then America in- 
ported it, put it in a ma- 
chine, called it humane, and 
gave it a fancy label — capi- 
tal punishment. 

After a few hundred 
years, the great American 
conscience got pricked. In 
1962 the last of 50 states 
took it off the books as the 
mandatory penalty for pre- 
meditated murder. Some 
states have abolished it al- 
together. There was a bill 
before the Massachusetts 
House this year to that ef- 
fect — it was defeated. (Long 
live the Salem witch burn- 
ings!) 

The Franco government 
in Spain tends, as we know, 
to be a bit backward. Civil- 
ization left them behind. 
This summer two "political" 
prisoners were executed by 
garroting — a tortuous form 
of capital punishment car- 
ried out with a metal collar. 
This rather uncomfortable 
necktie is strapped about the 
neck and slowly tightened 
until the spinal cord snaps. 
Apparently they've never 
heard of the more humane 
methods such as hanging, 
firing squads, electrocution, 
and gas pellets. This ex- 
ample of sheer barbarity 
cannot be overlooked, espe- 
cially in a time of relative 
peace. 

A U.N. Economic and So- 
cial Council came up with a 
study earlier this year, us- 
ing 65 countries, which 
proved that when the death 
penalty is abolished there is 
no increase in crime. Surely, 
the moral force of the U.N. 
can exert enough pressure 
on the rest of the world, in- 
cluding the U.S., to halt cap- 
ital punishment. Acts of 
vengeance cure nothing. 



To the Editor: 

The Collegian is getting 
careless. I may be one thing 
to be understaffed and over- 
worked, but to be so sloppy 
as to reverse the credit due 
two reporters is inexcusable. 
Though the titles and by- 
lines were correctly placed, 
the articles were switched. 
It seems parking is not all 
that merits a warning.

OLDEST HOUSE IN AMHERST 



Faculty Club Outgrows Facilities 



by PAT LONG 

The typical UMass student 
who feels that he is suffering 
more than is usual from the 
slings and arrows of higher 
learning will usually betake him- 
self to the Hatch for comfort, 
solace, and a cup of coffee. But 
what of the harried faculty 
member? He will, according to 
our research, take up some the- 
rapeutic hobby, beat his head 
against the walls of his office, or 
find refuge in the Faculty Club, 
which has been described by 
Charter Member and former 
President William Ross as "a 
place where we can let our hair 
down and say what we think." 

The Club itself has its head- 
quarters in Stockbridge House, 
the oldest in Amherst, built in 
1728 as the home of "Sam'l Bolt- 
wood, Husbandman". It is 
perched on the hill next to Clark 
Hall, and there the charming 
Faculty Club Hostess, Miss Ruth 
Ward, pointed out to us where 



the gracious proportions of the 
old house had been restored and 
then adapted to Faculty Club 
needs. "The parlor is now a 
lounge and small library" she 
said, "and the main kitchen a 
dining room." The former car- 
riage sheds now house billiard 
and ping-pong tables instead ol 
carts and sleighs. 

THE FACULTY ('LIB was 
oiganized in 1935, soon after 
the restoration of the house. It 
now has approximately 160 mem- 
bers who take part in a range 
of activities including daily 
luncheon and dinner, an occa- 
sional "Do It Yourself" supper 
or special reception, brUge games 
and afternoon coffee breaks. 
Nevertheless, according to some 
members, the facilities at Stock- 
bridge House have been "inade- 
quate for years," and will be- 
come even more so as the Uni- 
versity continues to grow. 

A RECENT POLL taken of the 
UMass faculty (both members 



and non-members), shows, for 
example, that 46.4% of those 
answering the questions felt that 
Stockbridge as it now exists 
would be an objection to their 
joining the Club. In addition, 
62.3% would like to see the 
present house enlarged and 
58.6% would like a new faculty 
club facility on campus. As these 
goals seem distant, Gerald Grady, 
University Business Manager 
and the encumbent faculty club 
President, is working with his 
Eexecutive Board to adapt the 
format of the Club as much as 
possible to the present needs and 
wishes of its members. 

Whichever solution to the prob- 
lem is finally adopted, the Fa- 
culty Club will undoubtedly con- 
tinue to fulfill the purpose stated 
in its constitution — "To help 
staff members to become better 
acquainted with one another, to 
foster a more friendly spirit and 
to make for greater unity of our 
group as a whole."

THE VERNACULAR: A New Twist To Your News 



by INEZ BRAND 

THE VERNACl LAR is a fea- 
ture column intended to cover 
that wide field of topics of in- 
terest to UMass students. There 
are no secrets in this column, 
only clarity and variety. Find

While at the Hatch, I over- 
heard four students talking 
about liquid diet food. I was 
overcome with desire to inform 
them that the industry's annual 
sales had fallen from $100 mil- 
lion to a mere $80 million. But I 
couldn't because what would 
they think. Now I can write it 

in this column, with the added 

privilege of press immunity. 



ANOTHER THING I over- 
beard was, "Hey Jack Baby, you 
didn't sign up for Smith's course, 
did you?" "Heck, no. His gut is 
a barf." My justification for men- 
tioning this in such a sophisti- 
cated column is that there are 
over 64,000 foreign students 
studying at universities in this 
country. These students listed 
American slang as a major dif- 
ficulty in their college adjust- 
ment. Unbelievable. 

If any freshmen want to check 
the etymology of that quota- 
tion I mentioned, don't bother 
with the "barf because you 
won' find it. Also, "gut" isn't 

the singular of "guts".

MARRIED PEOPLE, are you 

bored with looking for prema-

Simultaneous bald spots occur 
in a husband and wife, some-

Service. This condition seems to 
be triggered emotionally. A 
Chicago couple became bald in 
almost the corresponding part of 
their scalps. A psychiatric ex- 
amination discovered a mutual 
emotional dependence in the 
patients. The presence of cross- 
identification was also noted.

With the current excitement 
over a dip into the student's 
pocketbook for a car registration 
fee, we seem to have overlooked 
the person who is in charge of 
collecting the controversial fee. 
Col. John Marchant (USAF, 
ret.), now staff assistant in the 
Treasurer's office, is head of the 
University's Security and Civil 
Defense Department. 

Col. Marchant is a graduate of 
the Stockbridge School and holds 
two law degrees from National 
University in Washington, D.C. 
He joined the Army Air Force 
in 1933 as a 2nd Lt. and 3 years 
later achieved the rank of 1st Lt. 
From 1940 to '47, he served with 
the Intelligence Department and 
in 1947 he became Instructor of 
Air Intelligence with the 5th Air 
Force and then Director of In- 
telligence Headquarters. Carib- 
bean Air Command at Albrook 
Air Force Base. Canal Zone. 

In 1949 as Lt. Col., he joined 
the Intelligence Staff at Head- 



quarters USAF, Washington, 
D.C. In 1952. he was Assistant 
Air Attache in England, then, as 
Colonel, he returned in 1955 to

gration Division of Intelligence 
followed by a two year stint on 
the Middle East Planning Com- 
mittee. 

In 1958, Col. Marchant came 
to the University as Professor of 
Air Science, and in June of 1962 
he retired from active duty. In 
his two years as professor. Col. 
Marchant was very active in the 
Faculty Senate and organized 
the Young People's Rifle Club in 
Amherst. 

As already evidenced by the 
rash of traffic signs that has 
broken out all over the campus 
and the cry of the students 
against the new requirements for 
registering their cars. Col. Mar- 
chant has taken on a large 
responsibility. It seems, however, 
that he has the situation well 
under control.

white-capped blue, salty air in 
the sunshine. Yes, it's quaint old 
New England on Cape Cod Bay, 
but to be more exact. Nantucket 
Island. Some of the sand and 
sunshine from this spot is now 
a part of the University of Mas- 
sachusetts. Last spring this 
school received a gift of the 
ninety acre Peabody Estate 
situated on the harbor of Nan- 
tucket Island near Quaise Point. 
The estate was accepted with 
the intention of using it for edu- 
cational pur[M).scs; thus, the Pro 
vost appointed a committee with 
Dr. Hart let t as chairman to 
decide whether and to what 
extent the University should 
develop a program in marine 
sciences and where this opera- 
tion would be based. The com- 
mittee, to meet at the end of 

Scpteml)er. will determine what 
the physical needs of the pro- 



gram would be and then perhaps 
some or all of the operation will 
based there. 

If we look ahead two or three 
years, we might find a graduate 
program of research going on — 
possibly involving chemistry, 
physics, geology, microbiology, 
botany, zoology, wild life man- 
agement, and recreational leader- 
ship. The research would be of 
great significance, for the ocean 
is our last untapped resource. 

Problems such as harvesting 
the fish crop, managing the game 
and food sjiecies of the sea. and 
understanding the physiology of 
algae and other plant life have 
still to be examined. Recently, 
an explanation for the disap- 
paaranoa of the submarine 
Thresher has been attributed to 
cross-currents of cold and warm 
water not known or understood; 
thus, we see important implica- 



tions for our Navy. 

But let us return to a view of 
the Peabody estate today. There 
is no scientific equipment there, 
only a marshy land dotted with 
salt water ponds. A sheer bank 
drops in the harbor where one 
half mile of beach provides ex- 
cellent swimming conditions. The 
water is clear and not very deep 
and birds are plentiful, among 
them being the whistling swans 
like those on our college pond. 
Living quarters on the property 
include that for the caretaker. 
Mr. Clinton Andrews, president 
of the local fisherman's associa- 
tion, who lives there with his 
wife and daughter in this restful 
atmosphere four miles from 
town. 

"But what about the educa- 
tional aspect?" you ask This 
summer a student worked on •» 
project theVe which involved the 



breeding biology of terns; thus, 
we see the purpose of the land 
already being fulfilled. We also 
find this purpose in a recent let- 
ter to the president from Mr. 
Stockley, president of the Shaw- 
kemo Chapter of the Massachu- 
setts Archeological Society. Evi- 
dence of Indian activity has been 
discovered here and the Univer- 
sity will co-operate with Mr. 
Stockley in his search for arti- 
facts.

THE MASSACHUSETTS COLLEGIAN, WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 25, 1963 



Survey Reveals Few Negroes 
Occupying Top Teaching Positions 



A recent spot check by the 
New York Times revealed that a 
very small number of Negroes 
are currently teaching as full 
professors in U.S. colleges and 
universities. 

The Times queried 17 major 
educational institutions, finding 
that 11 of them in fact had 
Negro professors, but only one or 
two in most cases. A Columbia 
University spokesman said that 
it had no top-ranking Negroes on 
its staff. Neither Yale nor Har- 
vard have Negro professors, and 
Princeton has only one. 

Dr. John Hope Franklin, the 
Negro historian who last year 
was elected the first non-white 
member of Washington's Cosmos 
Club, will become a full profes- 
sor at the University of Chicago 
next year. Dr. Franklin, an au- 
thority on the history of slavery 
and the period of the Reconstruc- 
tion, is currently chairman of 
the history department at 
Brooklyn College. He is on leave 
as Pitt Professor at Cambridge 
University in England. 

The other universities queried 
gave varying answers. The list 
follows: University of Wisconsin 
— figures not available for lack 
of records by race. University of 
Minnesota — one full professor 
and two assistant professors, and 
perhaps others below full profes- 
sor, are Negroes. Notre Dame — 
One, an assistant professor of 



finance. Indiana University — 
Four, all assistant professors in 
music, astronomy, and military 
science, and one in Slavic studies 
at the Kokomo Center. 

University of Iowa — 23 aca- 
demic staff members of all ranks, 
including technicians, are Ne- 
groes. University of Illinois No 
figures as to academic employ- 
ment of Negroes, although of the 
17,242 i>ersons employed at all 
branches, 1,520 are Negro. Uni- 
versity of Michigan No records 
by race available but a spokes- 
man said that "some Negro 
professors were on the campus. 
University of California at Ber- 
keley -- No data but "at least 
several'' a spokesman said. 

Stanford - Spokesman said 
that he did not believe any Ne- 
groes were on the professional 
staff. University of California at 
Los Angeles— Five or six. Univer- 
sity of Southern California — 
Four. Massachusetts Institute of 
Technology — One, a civil engi- 
neer, an assistant professor. 

Princeton— Dr. William Frank- 
lin Strother. a Negro psycholo- 
gist, is on the staff now. Next 
fall, Dr. W. Arthur Lewis, vice 
chancellor of the University of 
the West Indies, will come as a 
full professor of economics and 
international affairs. New York 
University— No precise data, but 
a spokesman cited "at least two. '

of the working man easier? 

Now you're getting tricky. 




provide protection for those 
who need it most and can 
afford it least. Pioneered and 
dev el oped by Equitable, 
it has proved most efficacious. 
Today, the working man 
and his family enjoy a broad 
spectrum of protection 
provided by Group Insurance. 
For that reason, I would 
most emphatically suggest 
its inclusion among the 
significant achievements. But 
I still think the two-platoon 
system is pretty important.

Amherst President Lauds 
A Liberal Education 



In a speech presented this week 
at Amherst College, President 
week to 302 entering freshmen 
Calvin II. Plimpton told them 
"to ask questions, not merely 
seek answers." 

He went on to say that in to- 
day's world of nuclear testing 
and Birmingham bombing, the 
liberal arts college is more rele- 
vant than ever before. The an- 
cient idea that a liberal arts ed- 
ucation enables one to appreci- 
ate music, art and literature, 
and to be charming in the 
drawing room has become out- 
moded. 

Nowadays, one hores this lib- 
eral education will do much 
more. It should enable one to 



make decisions, choices, selec- 
tions. Having made a decision. 
it then becomes necessary to put 
it into effect. A liberal educa- 
tion helps towards this end by 
putting one in contact with ex- 
periences and understanding of 
all mankind. 

The President concluded thus: 
"The crux of this contact is the 
spirit of Inquiry the spirit of 
learning Some of you in com- 
ing here may feel you will find 
answers, and solutions. If that 
is all that happens, if you learn 
only how to get ahead, we will 
have failed, you and I. It is the 
spirit of learning which you 
must capture the ability to ask 
questions, not merely seek an- 
swers." 



COLLEGIATE PRESS SERVICE 

Greeks In State Of Change 



That most venerable and most 
debated institution, the Ameri- 
can college fraternity, is enter- 
ing a significant period of 
change, the Associated Press 
has decided. 

Noting widespread debate on 
the merits of the Greek system 
throughout the U. S. education- 
al community this year, the AP 
polled 150 campuses across the 
nation to discover what changes 
have been wrought in the fra- 
ternity system as a rsult of the 
contioversies of the past few 
years. 

The debate, of course, ha:> 
raged for decades. The Greek 
will iell you that the fraternity 
is the invaluable inculcator of 
self-reliance, the social graces, 
group democracy, and scholar- 
ship in the otherwise hapless 
student masses. And ihe non- 
Greek will tell you tha' frater- 
nities are the last refuge of big- 
ots, snobs, and rich men's sons 
who need a crutch to get them 
through school. 

At a time when the nation 
sees itself as hard pressed for 
creative minds from the univer- 
sities, some critics picture the 
fraternities and sororities as a 
vast anti intellectual .esert. 
where the "bonds of in .ther- 
hood too often tie knots of con- 
formity and the climb to the so- 
cial graces too often stumbles 
into a trap of hooch" as an AP 
writer put it. 

The one issue that all frater- 
nities and sororities must even- 
tually face up to. of course, is 
the discrimination question. In 
an age where more and more of 
the country's youth are finding 
themselves impatient with racial 
bigotry, the Greeks fin 1 that 
they are losing many potential- 
ly outstanding members because 
of their inability to integrate. 

Attitudes among university 
administrators toward the fra- 
ternity system are widely vai- 
led. At Oregon State, they are 
"welcome, not just tolerated." 
But Boston University Dean 
Stanton R. Curtis says "time is 
running out, I fear." citing fra- 
ternities' "fiscal mismanage- 
ment, low academic achieve- 



ment, and failure to choose a 
representative membership." 

One of the biggest arguments 
is over the selective nature of 
argue with the right to free as- 
Greek pledging systems. Few 
sociation of individuals, but 
many assert that most fraterni- 
ties still insist on their right to 
pick and choose their members 
as they please. The AP poll 
showed a definite trend toward 
increasing liberalization of se- 
lection policies. 

At Stanford I'niversity. the 
local Sigma Nu chapter voted to 
break its national ties because 
of the national's discriminatory 
Thomas Grey explained "it is 
becoming increasingly difficult 
to find a good pledge class 
which is willing to accept mem- 
bership in an organization which 
denies admittance on purely ra- 
cial grounds." 

Sometimes troubles with the 
national work the other way 
around. A sorority at Beloit, 
Delta Gamma, was dumped by 
its national after pledging a Ne- 
gro girl. A fraternity at Willa- 
mette reportedly gave up the 
idea of pledging a Negro be- 
cause it was a foregone conclu- 
sion that the national would 
not permit it. 

And thus, it would seem, 
while the Greek system may be 
underpressure, the decline and 
fall of the empire is still a long 
way off. But one thing confuses 
observers of the nation's nearly 
seven million Greeks they 
seem to have surprisingly little 
to say about anything as a 
group. It has been noticed on 
campus after campus that 
though Greeks may run campus 
politics, there is seldom such a 
thing as % "Greek" position— 
the students usually are In the 
game only to be In the game. 
They are after position and 
prestige, not dedicated to the 
resolution of Issues. 

There Is a sizeable mystique 
about a system that continues 
to attract millions of new mem- 
bers yet has no coherent phil- 
osophy or apparent purpose. 
But it appears that it will be 
with us for some time. 



Assistant to the Provost. Dr. 
William Venman. who has al- 
ready studied the idea of year- 
round college operation for three 
years, concluded that year- 
round operation is both econom- 
ical and wise. It will be cheaper 
to run the school in the summer, 
and students will be able to fin- 
ish their education in three 
years. The re-arrangement 
would allow the administration 
to enlarge the summer rogram. 
Then each semester would offer 
equal oportunities in courses and 
teachers. 

Dr. Venman said, "Some type 
of >ear-round operation is inevi-, 
table. Sooner or later we will be 
on a year-round operation basis." 
It will be interesting to see the 
administration's reaction and 
action on this report. 

Taxation . . .

known that this board exists at 
the whim of the King. 

We pay an Athletics Fee <or 
is it an Athletic Feei. We under- 
stand that there is an athletic 
counsel (or is it council) that 
has some voice in this tax, and 
that the President of the Senate 
has a voice in this body, but we 
wonder how loudly he speaks. We 
know that the football player 
who spoke to us about our idea 
to reduce this tax spoke loudly 
when he said "You want to take 
away my scholarship?" 

Then there is the Health fee. 
As long as one is quite sick, this 
is a good fee. And we're all a 
little sick. 

Now, we arrive at the various 
invisible, insidious fees being im- 
posed upon us by the Powers 
That Be. 

We pay a registration fee, a 
tax upon our vehicles, and we 
have no voice in this fee; we 
pay a hidden insurance fee; we 
pay a "reasonable" price for 
books and meals in our Student 
Union (where the profit goes is 
a delicate question). 

Now. we are being taxed. 
There is no denying this. We 
are taxed beyond endurance. 
And our endurance has ended. 
Take this as fair warning. SVCC 
has swelled to two and is still 
growing. We are the tempest in

be guarded. We will speak out. 
We will be represented. We are

Program Director Tells All 



"Whenever a student commit-

activity— from whom to invite, 
to where to buy balloons — we 
are ready to offer our services." 
In these words, Harold W. 
Watts summed up his responsi- 
bilities as Director of the Uni- 
versity Program Office. His job 



is to provide direction and co- 
ordination for programs related 
to the University if this service 
is asked for by responsible i er-

THE DEAN YOU SAVE MAY BE YOUR OWN 



Colleges are complicated and bewildering places, filled with 
complicated and l>e\vildering people. Today let us examine 
one of the most complicated and bewildering— yet fetching and 
lovable— of all campus figures. I refer, of course, to the dean 
of students. 

Policeman and confessor, shepherd and seer, warden and 
oracle, proconsul and pal— the dean of students is all of these. 
How, then, can we understand him? Well sir, perhaps the l>est 
way is to take an average day in the life of an average dean. 
Here, for example, is what happened last Thursday to Dean 
Killjoy X. Damper of the Duluth College of Helles Lettres 
and Pemmican. 

At 6 a.m. he woke, dressed, lit a Marlboro, and went up on 
the roof of his house to remove the statue of the Founder 
which had l>een placed there during the ni«ht by high- 
spirited undergraduates. 




MM, foliWM, k(m,%tibl tter-dc. 



At 7 a.m. he lit a Marlboro and walked briskly to the cam- 
pus. (The Dean had not been driving his car since it had been 
placed on the roof of the girls dormitory by high-spirited 
undergraduates.) 

At 7:45 a.m. he arrived on campus, lit a Marlboro and 
climbed the bell tower to remove his secretary who had been 
placed there during the night by high-spirited undergraduates. 

At 8 a.m. he reached his office, lit a Marlboro, and met with 
E. Pluribus Ewbank, editor of the student newspa|>er. Young 
Ewbank had l>een writing a series of editorials urging the 
United States to annex Canada. When the editorials had 
evoked no response, he had taken matters into his own hands. 
Accompanied by his society editor and two proofreaders, he 
had gone over the l>order and conquered Manitoba. With great 
patience and several Marlboro Cigarettes, the Dean persuaded 
young Ewbank to give Manitoba back. Young Ewbank, how- 
ever, insisted on keeping Winnipeg. 

At 9 a.m. the Dean lit a Marll>oro and met with Rol>ert 
Penn Sigafoos, president of the local Sigma Chi chapter, who 
came to report that the Deke house had been put on top of 
the Sigma Chi house during the night by high-spirited under- 
graduates. 

At 10 a.m. the Dean lit a Marlboro and went to umpire 
an intnimural Softball game on the roof of the law school 
where the campus b:iseball diamond had l>cen placed during 
the night by high-spirited undergraduates. 

At 12 noon the Dean had a luncheon meeting with the 
prexy, the bursar, and the registrar, at the bottom of the cam- 
pus swimming pool where the faculty dining room had been 
placed during the night by high-spirited undergraduates. 
Marlboros were passed after luncheon, but not lighted, owing 
to dampness. 

At 2 p.m., back in his office, the Dean lit a Marllwro and 
received the Canadian Minister of War who said unless young 
Ewbank gave Iwick Winnipeg, the Canadian army would inarch 
against the U.S. immediately. Young Ewbank was summoned 
and agreed to give back Winnipeg if he could have Moose Jaw. 
The Canadian Minister of War at first refused, but finally con- 
sented after young Ewbank placed him on the roof tfr the 
metallurgy building. **" 

At 3 p.m. the Dean lit a Marlboro and met with a delega- 
tion from the student council who came to present him with 
a set of matched luggage in honor of his fiftv years' service as 
dean of students. The Dean promptly packed the luggage with 
all his clothing and fled to IJtica, New York, where he is now 
in the aluminum siding game. e I(HW MM ttkVtama 



amount and quality of student 
responsibility. Being as busy as 
he is In this demanding job, It 
seems amazing that he still has 
time to engage in an outside 
interest. 

Mr. V. tts* outside interest 
has resulted in his writing sev- 
en pamphlets, and in his aiding 
in the production of two movies 
for the Hampshire County Cen- 
ter of the Rural Research In- 
stitute. This nonprofit organi- 
zation sponsors research and 
other activities pertinent to ru- 
ral living. The pamphlets, of 
special interest to the rural res- 
ident, range in subject from 
"Right Interiors for Your Rural 
House" to "How to Stencil a 
Tray." Three hundred thousand 
of these ramphlets have been 
distributed throughout the 
world. In addition to these, the 
two movies produced have been 
seen by more than fifty million 
people and have even been 
shown behind the Iron Curtain. 
The first mov>es "A New Life 
for AH of Rural America"— de- 
picts projects that will help de- 
velop community activities with 
planned rural leadership. The 
second movie "Community 
Center RFD" is a color film 
showing how to create a hap- 
pier more united community 
through rural leadership. 

As Mr. Watts stated. "Our 
purpose is to show people what 
has been done by others and 
what can be done by them." 
Whether it may be in helping a 
student to organize an affair, or 
in helping a rural resident to 
develop his community, Harold 
Watts performs a valuable serv- 
ice.

UMass Football Manager's Work 
Has Little Glory But Much Labor 



Scouting a Large Part 
Of Asst. Coach 9 s Job 



by JOHN GOODRICH 

Mention the position of man- 
ager on a football team and an 
image pops up of a young fellow 
running onto the playing field 
with a water pail in hand. 
Actually, this is only the small 
part of his job. 

This year at the University, 
head manager Gene Burgin '65. 
has two assistants, Algirt Valiu- 
nas '65. and Charles Bradshaw 
'66. The jobs these gentlemen 
have range from shagging foot- 
balls in practice to being busi- 
ness manager for away trips. 

The manager's hardest job is 
during the two week pre-season 
training session when he must be 
up before seven to wake the 
players. After eating and taking 
roll at the morning meal, goes 
to the field, sets up the tackling 
dummies and the blocking pads, 
gets the water, and makes nume- 
rous other minor preparations. 
Then comes the dinner roll call, 



another meeting, and then a 
return to the practice field. 
"Lights out" is at 10:30 for the 
manager as well as the players. 
The manager gives up his job for 
the last two weeks of the sum- 
mer, and in return he gets train- 
ing table benefits and enough 
financial compensation to pur- 
chase his books. These privileges 
are solely for the head manager. 

Managers put in about four 
hours a day when the team is 
practicing. Besides the task of 
getting the field ready, the 
manager must check the foot- 
balls and make numerous trips 
from the field to the locker room 
for forgotten equipment. 

Plans for an away game are 
made early in the week. In co- 
operation with Mr. Earl Lorden, 
assistant director of athletics, 
the manager makes arrange- 
ments for eating and staying 
over night. He must check to 
make sure that the incidentals

P.M.D. took an early lead in 
their game with P.S.D. when 
Cesarco scored on a pass from 
Chutoransky for a 6-0 lead in 
the first half. In the second half 
P.M.D. increased its lead to 13-0 
on a pass play from Chutoran- 
sky to Conners and ran for the 
exta points. P.S.D. then broke 
into the scoring column on a

The three managers split the

Burgin is quick to acknowledge, 
"The manager's job is easier 
here than at other large schools 
because of the fine set up. "The 
players, coaches, and equipment 
men all help in the work." 

Burgin noted, "At a school like 
Harvard as many as 15 men 
apply for the position and elec- 
tions are held. Everyone wants 
to be the manager, while here it 
is hard to get anyone interested." 

While the work is often tedi- 
ous, Burgin notes, "It is a real 
pleasure to work with such a 
great bunch of guys, and an ex- 
cellent experience."

Anytime the clicking of the 
movie projector is heard coming 
from room 9A of the Cage, it is 
a safe bet that Redman backfield 
coach Jack Delaney will be In 
there viewing the films of either 
the Redmen or of future Massa- 
chusetts opponents. 

Jack views these films exten- 
sively, running and rerunning in- 
dividual plays of the teams the 
Iledmen will encounter through- 
cut the season. After he has 
thoroughly viewed each play, 
Jack diagrams the play on a 10 
by 12 piece of cardboard to show 
the team in mapping out de- 
fenses and offenses. 

iB 

Monday afternoon Coach De- 
lsney was viewing the films of 
the Holy Cross-Harvard game. 
As a result he had a pile of card- 
board several inches thick with 
Harvard plays drawn out. This 
is just one of the many duties, 
besides on-the-field-coaching, 
which backfield Coach Jack De- 
laney performs so well. 

Coach Delaney was a former 
University of Cincinnati back- 
field standout during the Sid 
Gillman era in the early fifties. 
Like Headcoach Vic Fusia, Jack 



is beginning his third year on 
the Massachusetts coaching staff. 
He also served for two years as a 
freshman coach and five seasons 
as offensive backfield coach at 
his alma mater. 

Coach Delaney first attracted 
attention while playing on the 
basketball, football, and baseball 
teams of Columbus Aquinas High 
School. He entered Cincinnati 
after eighteen months in the 
Army. In 1952, his senior year, 
Delaney averaged almost eight 
yards per carry while the Bear- 
cats were winning eight games, 
losing one and tying one. The fol- 
lowing spring he captained the 
baseball squad. 

In his coaching days, Jack has 
had under his tutelage many fine 
backfield stars. These include: 
Joe Morrisson, (New York 
Giants), quarterbacks Jackie 
Lee (Houston Oilers), John Mc- 
Cormick (Denver Broncos), and 
last but not least Jerry Whelchel. 
Of Whelchel Jack says, "At this 
stage of the game Jerry is on a 
par with them all." 

Thus in his comparatively 
short coaching career, a fine 
backfield man has produced other 
fine backfield men. 



Frosh Cross Country Team 



by MARSHALL KAROL 

The freshman cross country 
team faces its first test of the 
season this Saturday against a 
formidable Coast Guard team. 
According to Bob Pendleton, who 
has been aiding Coach Cobb in 
preparation for this meet, the 
frosh have an excellent potential 
and could be one of the best 
squads in recent years. 

Due to tedious academic sched- 
ules the squad has not had the 
opportunity to practice as a com- 



plete unit. However, several run- 
ners have been quite impressive 
in limited practice. The most ex- 
perienced trackman is Steve St. 
Claire, a holder of several high

Redmen Fans Th 
Cage For Game 



by STEVE HEWEY 

It's been a long time since 
we've seen so much interest gen- 
erated in a UMass football game 
as the interest that has been 
aroused by the UM -Harvard tilt 
scheduled for Harvard Stadium 
this Saturday. The question most 
asked around campus the few 
days is, "Are you going to the 
Harvard game Saturday?" Judg- 
ing by the ticket sales at the 
Physical Education Building this 
past week, the answer has been 
almost always "Yes." More than 
2800 tickets were sent to U.M. 
for sale to students and other 



interested parties. As this story 
is being scribbled there remain 
a scant couple of hundred for 
last minute aficionados. Besides 
the number of students that will 
leave the Redmen reservation 
Saturday for Cambridge, there 
will surely be scores of UM 
alumni in the Boston area who 
will come to see their alma mater 
perform. Then interest may be 
further stirred when we recall 
that the Redmen rolled over the 
Crimson 27-12, their last trip to 
town. 

The Redmen were scrutinized

coaches who attended the 
UMass-Maine game last week- 
end. They said they were im- 
pressed at the almost equal 
potency of the Red and Blue 
teams that Vic Fusia threw 
against Maine. They didn't com- 
ment on the Redmen pass de- 
fenses which allowed Maine to 
connect on 16 of its 24 passes. 
Although the Redmen will toll 

tc plug the air gaps before Sat- 
urday the Harvard brass won't 
neglect what it saw. The Crim- 
son will be sure to test the de- 
fenses again this week. 



Fusia Uses Merit Awards 
To Give Incentive To Team 



The imaginative Redmen foot- 
ball coach, Vic Fusia, has in- 
stituted another innovation to 
determine standout defensive 
playing by the members of the 




team. Fusia has devised a Red- 
man Club, based on outstanding 
performance of personal initia- 
tive. There are categories in 
which a player can receive a 
maroon letter, which is painted 
on the front of his helmet. If the 
cycle is completed more then 
once a star will be painted over 
the word Redman. 

The categories are: intercept 
a pass; return an interception 
for a touchdown (one letter plus 
a bonus ) ; recover a fumble and

UMass recovers; make a tackle 
inside the 20-yard line on a kick- 
off; make a tackle for a safety; 
tackle an opponent for a 10- 
yard loss, or more (one letter 
plus a bonus); block a punt, extra 
point or field goal; return a punt 
or kickoff for a touchdown (one 
letter plus a bonus); make three 
unassisted tackles in a game; 
extra effort on any defensive 
play. Three bonus points will 
make one letter.

STAPLER 



by GENE COLBIRX 

The varsity cross country team 
will open its 1963 season in Con- 
necticut, on Saturday, when it 
opposes the Coast Guard Aca- 
demy. This meet should not be 
too hard for the Redmen to win 
as the Coast Guard usually does 
not have a very strong team. 
Saturday will be important, 



though, as it will give an indica- 
tor as to how close the Redmen 
will be running. Cross-country is 
scored by adding up the places 
that the first five men on each 
team gets, with the low score 
winning. A team that takes the 
first five places in a meet would 
have a score of 15. The sixth 
and seventh men on a team serve 



to displace competitors, al- 
though their finishes are not 
added into the team score. 

Thus it can be seen why it 
would be important for a team 
to have as little space as possible 
between its runners. For a team 
to capture first place then have 
the next man take fifteenth place 
would make it hard to win many 



meets. With "Digger" Brouillet 
a certain finisher in the top 
three positions in almost any 
meet, the Redmen's big problem 
will be to get the other six boys 
to finish as close behind him as 
possible. Right now it appears 
that the spread is going to be 
scmewhere over a minute, which

UMass Coed Removed 
To Boston Hospital 

A UMass freshman, suffering 
from a rare infection known as 
gas gangrene, underwent surgery 
yesterday morning in the giant 
pressure chamber where Presi- 
dent's Kennedy's son underwent 
treatment. 

Seventeen-year-old Sandra Ol- 
son, of Worcester, living at Mary 
Lyon House, was removed from 
the chamber at Children's Hos- 
pital Medical Center in Boston 
after the operation. Contacted by 
the Collegian, hospital officials 
said Miss Olson is in serious 
condition, with a slight improve- 
ment since this morning. 




Court Fines 

UM Student 

For Drinking 

by Harold A. Gushue, Jr. '85 

C. Melvern Fillmore, 20, of 
Norwood, a University of Mas- 
sachusetts junior, living at Zeta 
Nu, was fined $50 in District 
Court this morning for falsifying 
his age to purchase liquor. Am- 
herst police apprehended Fill- 
more drinking beer, on Sept. 14 
at the West View Cafe. 

Police said that Fillmore had 
changed the birth date on his 
I.D. card from Dec. 6, 1942 to 
Feb. 6, 1942. Fillmore pleaded 
nolo. As Fillmore was leaving 
court, Judge Ryan warned, "Tell 
your friends at the University 
that $50 will be the standard fine 
for this offense from now on." 



SANDRA OLSEN 

It marked the first time in 
medical history that the pressure 
chamber had been used for this 
kind of surgery, hospital officials 
said. Gas gangrene spreads in 
tissues in which there is a lack 
of Oxygen. Doctors said that the 
Hyperbaric Chamber forced Oxy- 
gen into Miss Olson's system at 
three times atmospheric pressure 
to attack bacilli causing the in- 
fection. Officials said the bacilli 
failed to respond to previous 
medication. 

Miss Olson contracted the in- 
fection following an operation 
last week for a ruptured appen- 
dix at Cooley Dickinson Hospital 
in Northampton. Miss Olson's 
condition worsened. Wednesday's 
90-mile trip to Boston was made 
in hopes that the pressure cham- 
ber can save her life. 

According to a University 
spokesman, Sandra Lee went to 
the University infirmary last

Co-operation 

Replaces 

Antagonism 

The greatest challenge of the 
University is to produce "the liv- 
ing student, the type of student 
who will actively participate in 
public service." declared Presi- 
dent John W. Lederle in this 
year's Opening Convocation Ad- 
dress. 

The Opening Convocation, held 
Thursday morning at 11:15 in 
the S.U. Ballroom was attended 
by some 200 students and guests. 
After the academic Procession 
and Invocation, Provost Wood- 
side presented the Outstanding 
Teacher's Award of 1963 to Jos- 
eph R. Richason, Associate Pro- 
fessor of Chemistry- 
Following the award presenta- 
tion, Student Senate President 
Jon Fife remarked that the at- 
mosphere of student antagonism 
towards the administration has 
been replaced by one of co-oper- 
ation. However, Fife expressed 
disappointment in the lack of 
students at the convocation. 

"There is no doubt." began 
President Lederle, "that the Uni- 
versity is rapidly becoming the 
enthusiastic first choice of stu- 
dents in the Commonwealth." 

Lederle went on to describe 
the astonishing progress the Uni- 
versity has made since its found- 
ing. He noted that currently 
there are almost 1000 courses

offered on the UMass curriculum 
and 90 major buildings on cam-

Addressing himself to the stu-

Senate Passes Bill 
To Improve Working 



The Senate, temporarily as- 
suming the role of a cleaning- 
woman, held a convention Wed- 
nesday night designed to eli- 
minate some flaws in the Stu- 
dent Government Association 
Constitution. 

The proposed amendments to 
the Constitution, representing 
months of preparation, were 
given due consideration by the 
Senate. After some deliberation 
and elucidative debate, they 
were acted upon favorably. 

The majority of the amend- 
ments, reports Senate President ' 
Jon Fife, do not concern so much 
the structure of the Student Gov- 
ernment as the internal work- 
ings. Two items of major im- 
portance are those allowing for 
a proper allocation of Senate 
seats, and establishing in writ- 
ing the President of the Senate 
as the official representative of 
the student body. It should be 
noted that this function has been 



performed by Senate Presidents 
in the past. 

These changes, according to 
Senate President Jon Fife, ". . . 
will serve to clear out the cob- 
webs and roadblocks within the 
Government Association Con- 
stitution, and to expedite the 
functions and processes of our 
Student Government to bring 
about a more efficient, and effec- 
tive, legislative machine. 

A $23 appropriation order >*>t 
off a round of firey debate at 
Wednesday night's meeting. 

The debate was set off when 
the Senate resolved itself into a 
committee of the whole to dis- 
cuss a request of the Commuters' 
Club for a $23 appropriation to 
sent a delegate to SWAP. 

The floor fight began when 
some Senators voiced the opinion 
that the appropriation would be 
"a bad precedent." They were 
challenged by representatives of

commented on the astonishing

to cheat yourself of an educa- 
tion." 

To prevent such academic 
crippling, the President urged 
students to exercise their con- 
science and individuality through 
optn discussion of campus prob- 
lems. 

"The quality of a University 
can be judged by the talking 
that goes on its campus," he 
said.

MOTORCADE 

James Medeiros, President 
of the Class of '64, stated that 
it has become apparent that 
the majority of students going 
to the Harvard game have 
such diverse plans, especially 
as regards time of departure, 
that it is impossible to suc- 
cessfully organize a motor- 
cade, as had been anticipated 

Nevertheless, it is hoped 
that everyone will get to the 
stadium with little trouble. 



HIGH HOLIDAYS 

Students planning religious 
observance of Yom Kippur 
with their families or on cam- 
pus should make appropriate 
arrangements with their in- 
structors for the necessary 
class absences. 



THE MASSACHUSETTS COLLEGIAN, FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 27. 1968 



Freshman 

by JAMES CORTESE 

It is the fate of every incoming fresh- 
man to stand in line to the Convocation cere- 
monies, and subsequently, to wait in line be- 
fore he receives his diploma. In the mean- 
time there is the bookstore line, the Hatch 
line, the cafeteria line, the telephone line, 
and the head line. A student finds that about 
5'< of his time must be spent waiting for 
one thing or another. What is the Univer- 
sity's answer to this problem? The Anti- 
Boredom Survival Kit. This portable pack- 
age contains all the necessary equipment to 
keep any student ali%'e in even the longest 
lines. 

A kit includes: (1) two eyelid jacks to 
keep sleepy eyelids open; (2) a battery op- 
erated phonograph (and earphones) that 
plays selected passages from the Student 
Handbook. 

What is the University's purpose in al- 
lowing such situations to exist on campus? 
For one thing, the administration has delib- 
erately pursued this Long Line Policy in 
order to support the already large student 
body. While half the students are tied up in 
some line, the other half can go about the 
process of being educated. 

But the question is : is it better for many 
to be ill-schooled, or few to be well educated? 

AN EARLY DEADLINE 

Criticism galore has been branded against the 
ambiguous term, administration. Unfortunately 
there are few who understand the meaning of the 
word and completely comprehend its functioning 
and meaning. But from its depths there has for- 
mulated an idea which is to help students cope 
with the size of the University. Specifically the 
idea emanates from the Guidance office under the 
direction of Dr. Southworth. The program involves 
small groups of freshmen meeting under the guid- 
ance of an upperclassman. 

The University is a huge institution. As a stu- 
dent progresses in his college career it becomes 
smaller. But it is never so incomprehensible and 
sprawling as the first semester of the freshman 
year. The opportunity to be able to enter a 
small co-ed group discussing perhaps "faith and the 
college campus" or "values and mortality" or "dat- 
ing" or "studying" offers much to any student lost 
in the complexity of our University. 

Never can anyone say. "The University is a 
factory" or "I'm just a number." For here is a 
chance where upperclassmen will be leading dis- 
cussion about ideas that are connected with you. 
It will be difficult for people to say "No one cares 
about me" for some one does. The freshmen of the 
class of '67 are very lucky. They have an opportun- 
ity to "acquire early in their college career a deep- 
ened appreciation for the intellectual opportunities 
of a University, and to search for their personal 
educational and vocational goals with upperclass- 
men guiding, as Dr. Southworth has so well put it. 

G.M.M. 

Numbered Seats 

by JOE DOLAN 

A freshman arriving on this campus is sub- 
jected to a flood of advice, admonitions, and things 
to remember. Outstanding among these is the old 
laying: "Now you are on your own, no one is going 
to tell you what to do, if you want to stay here 
you'll have to do it on your own." This is all we'l 
and good. The University is a place to grow up. 

But it seems that this is not the way it is. A 
freshman will go to his first class and find that at- 
tendance is taken, just as in high school. He is told 
that he can miss a certain number of classes, and 
after that his grade will be lowered for not at- 
tending- 

This practice of lowering grades because of cut 
classes is completely wrong in itself l>ecause it is 
misleading. A person who looks at a student's rec- 
ord expects to find how much the student has 
learned about a certain subject. If the record shows 
a "C grade in a course the reader can only as- 
sume that the student knows an average amount 
about that subject. But what if that grade was 
lowered from "("' to "D" because of missed classes? 
The student still knows "C" amount of subject ma- 
terial, but the record has been made purposely in- 
correct and the reader is therefore misinformed. 

What reason, then, for compulsory attendance? 
The roll callers say it keeps people in the class 
who wouldn't otherwise be there. Is this a food 
thing in itself? Why should those people be there 
if they don't want to be? A person in college is 
supposed to do it on his own. Why not give him 
a chance to? 



Human Beings Chose This 




THEY VOTED FOR THIS 

by JOHN B. CHILDS 

The role was called . . . the vote came ... 80 for, and 
19 against. With this margin the United States Senate voted 
"yes" for the test ban treaty. 

The arguments still existed for and against ratification. 
The piles of statistics and other facts both pro and con are 
now on record. 

However let us not forget that awesome subject which 
all those facts are concerned with. I^et us not forget the 
naked brutal force of the nuclear explosion. Look at the 
photograph above. This is what the 19 voted for when they 
voted against the test ban treaty. 

Those who voted for this awesome power of the nuclear 
deaths-head have placed their names at the foundations on 
which this deaths-head rises. Their names are the building 
blocks, regard and note them well — Bennett of Utah, the 
Byrds of Virginia and West Virginia, Curtis of Nebraska, 
Eastland of (Mississippi, Goldwater of Arizona, Jordan 
of Idaho, Laulche from Ohio, Long of Louisiana, McClellan 
of Arkansas, Meehem of New Mexico, Robertson of Vir- 
ginia, Russell of Georgia, Simpson of Wyoming. Smith 
of Maine, Stennis of Mississippi, Talmadge of Georgia, Thur- 
mond of South Carolina, and Tower of Texas. 

After these names belongs an "A", indicative of those 
Advocates of Atomic destruction, whatever their role is 
now in the United States, whatever their roles may be in 
the future, that "4" is attached to them. 

Remember these 19 and look at the photograph of the 
nuclear explosion and think of what is represented therein. 
Remember, they voted for this. 



A Southern Editor Speaks 

A Negro mother wept in the streets Sunday 
morning in front of a Baptist church in Birming- 
ham. In her hand she held a shoe from the foot of 
her dead child. 

We held that shoe with her. 

Everyone of us in the white South holds that 
small shoe in his hand. 

It is too late to blame the sick criminals who 
handled the dynamite. The FBI and the police can 
deal with that kind. 

The charge against them is simple. They killed 
four children. 

Only we can trace the truth, Southerner — you 
and I. We broke those children's bodies. 

We watched the stage set without staying it; 
we listened to the prologue undisturbed. 

We saw the curtain opening with disinterest. 

We have heard the plea. 

We— who go on electing politicians who heat the 
kettles of hate. 

We who raise no hand to silence the mean and 
little men who have their "nigger" jokes. 

We — who stand aside in imagined rectitude and 
let the mad dogs that run in every society slide 
their leashes from our hands and spring. 

We — the heirs of the proud South who protest 
its worth and demand its recognition — we are the 
ones who have ducked the difficult, skirted the un- 
comfortable, caviled at the challenge, resented the 
necessary, rationalized the unacceptable and cre- 
ated the day surely when these children would die. 

• # * 

This is no time to load our anguish onto the 
murderous scapegoat who set the dynamite of our 
own manufacture. 

He didn't know any better. 

Somewhere in the dim and fevered recess of an 
evil mind he feels right now that he has been a 
hero. 

He is only guilty of murder. He thinks he has 
pleased us. 

We of the white South who know better are the 
ones who must take a harsher judgment. 

We, who know better, created a climate for child 
killing by those who don't. 

We hold that shoe in our hand, Southerner, let 
us see it straight, and look at the blood on it. 

Let us compare it with the unworthy speeches 
of Southern public men who have traduced the 
Negro; match it with the spectacle of shrilling stu- 
dents whose parents and teachers turn them free 
to spit epithets at small huddles of Negro children 
for a week before this Sunday in Birmingham. 

Hold up the shoe and look beyond it to the 
State House at Montgomery, where the official at- 
titudes of Alabama have been spoken in heat and 
anger. 

Let us not lay the blame on some brutal fool 
who didn't know any better. 

We know better. 

We created the day, we bear the judgment. 

May God have mercy on the poor South that has 
been so led. 

May what has happened hasten the day when 
the good South, which does live and have great be- 
ing, will rise to this challenge of racial understand- 
ing and common humanity in the full power of its 
unasserted courage. 

The Sunday school play at Birmignham is ended. 

With a weeping Negro mother, we stand in the 
bitter smoke and hold a shoe. 

If our South is ever to be what we wish it to be, 
we will plant a flower of nobler resolve for the 
South now upon these four small graves that we 
dug.

An Open Letter to the Editor: 

The above editorial, which appeared in 
the Christian Science Monitor last Friday, 
offers one of the first clear voices of regret 
from the white South in our decade. It repre- 
sents the change of attitude in a hitherto 
implacable stand which most of us have long 
awaited. 1 submit it to the Collegian in order 
that our college community will not be un- 
aware of this important budding movement; 
but of even greater importance is the recog- 
nition that we in the North fully share 
Southern guilt. In this brotherhood of shame 
let us not hesitate to face the truth squarely, 
ask the forgiveness of those whom we have 
wronged, and seek to find again our basic 
humanity. May we all, as Americans rather 
than as Northerners or Southerners, have 
the courage of Mr. Patterson to walk boldly, 
confidently into the light of truth — that light 
which detects neither white nor black but 
only the intentions of the heart.

State University and then did 
further graduate work at Bow- 
doin College, Massachusetts In- 
stitute of Technology, and Clark 
University. Prof. Richason has 
been a member of the UMass 
faculty since 1947. 

The award for distinguished 
teaching was made for the first 
time last year at the opening 
convocation of the University's 
Centennial Year. The special tri- 
bute to good teaching at UMass 
was made possible by a husband- 
wife team of physicians from 
California who had no formal 
ties with the University. 

Dr. Clifford B. Cherry and Dr. 
Kathryn T. Cherry established 
the award as a special contribu- 
tion to the University's Centen- 
nial celebration. The Cherry's 
only tie with UMass has been 
through a friend, Miss Victoria 
Schuck, a member of the UMass 
Board of Trustees and a profes- 
sor at Mount Holyoke College. 

The cash award last year and 
again this year was matched by 
the UMass board of trustees. Al- 
though Mrs. Cherry died last 
spring in a tragic automobile ac- 
cident, Dr. Clifford Cherry has 
continued the award. 

Prof. Richason was chosen the 
distinguished teacher by a facul- 
ty committee which set up the 
criteria for selection. The first 
winner of the Cherry Award for 
Distinguished Teaching was Wil- 
liam H. Ross, Professor of Phy- 
sics, the 1962 recipient.

UMASS MARCHING BAND TO PRESENT 
SPECTACLE AT HARVARD STADIUM 



The University of Massachu- 
setts Athletic Department an- 
nounced today, that the U. of M. 
Marshing Band will present a 
fast-paced, newly designed show 
in its first appearance of the 
1963 football season. The pro- 
gram and halftime shows by the 
band and precisionettes drill 
team will be viewed in the Har- 
vard Stadium, Saturday, by a 
crowd estimated at 25,000. 

John A. Jenkins, recently ap- 
pointed Conductor of Bands and 



Assistant Professor of Music at 
the University, is former solo 
cornetist with the University of 
Michigan Marching Band, a 
marching unit which is recog- 
nized nationally for its exciting 
gridiron performances. 

Accordng to University offi- 
cials, the University of Massa- 
chusetts Marching Band is tak- 
ing immediate action this year, 
to produce for gridiron crowds 
in the East, the type of band 



Financial Aid For SNCC 
Field Secretaries Denied 



Americus, Georgia (CPS) — A 
hearing for three workers from 
the Student Non-Violent Coordi- 
nating Committee (SNCC) who 
are being held without bail on 
charges of attempting to incite 
insurrection is expected within 
five days. 

Albany attorney C. B. King 
filed a motion seeking the re- 
lease of Ralph Allen of Melrose, 
Massachusetts, Donald Harris of 
New York city, and John Per- 
dew of Denver, Colorado. The 
three have been held since Aug- 
ust 8 without bail. 

Perdews case was brought to 
the attention of Attorney Gen- 
eral Robert Kennedy by Con- 
gressman Allott, Dominick and 
Rogers, all of Colorado. They 
have asked the Justice Depart- 
ment to investigate the charges 
against Perdew. 

SNCC has charged that the 
conditions in Americus' jails are 
"incredible." The Committee re- 
cently produced photographs of 
jail conditions in the Leesburg 
stockade where "as many as 36 
young girls were kept in a sin- 
gle room with no beds, no mat- 
tresses, no sheets, no pillows, and 
no blankets." 

The young girls, two who are 
11 years old, told of the over- 
flowing toilets and that they 
had to use cardboard boxes to 
take care of waste materials. 
Those in jail are fed four stale, 
half-cooked hamburgers once a 
day. 

In other action, the SNCC 
wanted the National Student 
Congress to commit itself to di- 
rectly financing six SNCC field 
secretaries. 

This action never materialised. 
Neither did several other cours- 
es of action desired by the left. 

The attitude of moat delegates 
seemed to be that the left want- 
ed too much. Many delegates 
were willing to condemn the po- 
lice action and brutality that oc- 
curred in Americus, Georgia, but 
financing another SNCC secre- 
tary was more than they could 
take. In fact, several delegates

were unwilling to believe that 
police brutality was a phenome- 
na in the South until National 
Affairs Vice-President Timothy 
Manring documented the charg- 
es in the text of a phone conver- 
sation with Americus attorney 
C. B. King. 

Why was there little action 
when the plenary was willing to 
condemn the Americus situation? 
An almost total breakdown in 
the floor leadership of the left 
is a partial explanation. A reti- 
cence on the part of most dele- 
gates to commit the association 
to any one particular course of 
action was another reason. 

Perhaps the most important 
reason was the general atmos- 
phere of the congress itself. 
Throughout the proceedings most 
of the attention was given to 
parliamentary maneuvering, dil- 
atory questioning, irrelevant 
amendments and last ditch at- 
tempts to achieve changes that 
had been defeated at earlier 
times. The only real victory that 
can be claimed by the left is the 
revised basic policy declaration 
on National Security and Civil 
Liberties.

YD's 



Favor 



Vietnam Withdrawal 



San Diego, California (CPS)— 
After a two day convention, the 
California Young Democrats 
went on record in favor of Amer- 
ican withdrawal from South 
Vietnam, admission of Red Chi- 
na to the United Nations, and 
more federal intervention in ci- 
vil rights action in the South. 

The Young Democrats, how- 
ever, refused to Investigate send- 
ing a delegation to Cuba next 
summer "to determine the truth 
about Cuba." Many of the reso- 
lutions adopted at the Conven- 
tion were critical of the Ken- 
nedy administration. 

California Governor Edmund 
G. Brown refused to speak out 
against the Young Democrats de- 



spite pressure from the GOP. 

''Young Democrats don't speak 
for me and I disagree on a great 
many of their resolutions," 
Brown said in defending their 
right to speak. Brown said the 
YD's represent a rather extreme 
point of view and are part of a 
small minority. 

Republican pressure came from 
California Republican Chairman 
Caspar Weinberger who accused 
the YD's of favoring "dangerous- 
ly irresponsible policies." 

Joseph Martin Jr., Republican 
national committeeman, called 
on the governor to repudiate the 
views of the group which Brown 
refused to do.

THE MASSACHUSETTS COLLEGIAN, FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 27, 1963 



First of Three Articles 



The Future Of The Peace Corps 



For Freshmen Only 



by ROY EBERT 

(Editors Note: Mr. Ebert, presi- 
dent of the United States Stu- 
dent Press Association and editor 
of The Daily Illini, was one of 
four editors to spend one week 
in Washington recently to edit 
the Peace Corps News, a supple- 
ment to campus news papers 
that appears twice yearly. This 
is the first of a three part 
article.) 

WASHINGTON. D.C. (CPS) — 
The fundamental question facing 
the Peace Corps at the start of 
its third year, according to 
Director R. Sargent Shriver, can 
be stated simply: 

''As young Americans realize 
how unglamorous and unroman- 
tic the work of developing na- 
tions can be, will they be tricked 
into believing it is also unim- 
portant?" 

This was the problem as 
Shriver outlined it at two major 
student meetings in August; the 
National Student Congress of 
the United States National Stu- 
dent Association, and the con- 
vention of the National Federa- 
tion of Catholic College Students. 
It is also a problem which 
gains increasing attention in the 
Peace Corps Washington offices 
as returning Volunteers report 
that their greatest adversaries in 
the field were boredom, lone- 
liness, and a sense of futility. 

"Americans are loath to take 
things slowly, and Peace Corps 
Volunteers are no exception." 
Shriver said in a September 
interview with CPS. 

"We're all used to quick re- 
sults, and we forget that most 
societies around the world are 
moving at a walk. It takes 
longer to achieve results, and 
make them stick. This is one of 
the things you can't really 
demonstrate during the Peace 
Corps training periods. It has to 
be learned in the field." 

Shriver said any progress, 
regardless of how little, is often 
more than some project areas 
have been previously. "Volun- 
teers may be disappointed, so to 
speak, because in two years they 
had succeeded only in moving 
the ball from the 50-yard line to 
the 49-yard line." Shriver said. 
"Too often they forget that it 
may be the first time the ball 
has moved at all in a particular 
society. 

"The test of the Peace Corps." 
he said, "will be whether we are 
mature and sophisticated enough 
to realize this." 

The Peace Corps director 
fainted out. however. that 
young, creative Volunteers often 



have an edge on the experts in 
underdeveloped societies. When 
the Corps was being launched, 
he recalled, one of the most fre- 
quent questions was: How can 
Volunteers accomplish anything 
in areas where experts have 
tried and failed? 

"We are now finding," Shriver 
said, "that in many of these 
areas our young, adaptable 
Volunteers are gaining better 
results than the experts — and for 
an almost obvious reason. The 
experts require backing, support, 
assistance, and equipment, and 
then — more often than not — they 
discover that the society simply 
does not respond to expert pro- 
cedures. Our Volunteers, on the 
other hand, go into an area and 
work with the tools at hand. 
They adapt to a situation. And 
most importantly, they work 
and live with the people, gain- 
ing their confidence and coopera- 
tion." 

Shriver and other top Peace 
Corps officers are confident that 
the initial enthusiastic response 
to the Peace Corps idea will not 
lessen as the Corps loses its first 
glow of romanticism. 

"The bloom is off the rose," 
Shriver said, "and there's no 
longer the thrill of being the first 
Volunteer in many areas. But 
the second — or the tenth — wave 
of Volunteers will find their 
work cut out for them, and will

often find themselves in a posi- 
tion to achieve more meaningful 
results because of the ground- 
work of the pioneer Volunteers. 

"The job of a Volunteer today 
is, in a way, more difficult than 
it was two years ago," he said. 
"The first Volunteers could 
afford to make mistakes; now 
the situation is different. Yet 
there is a greater potential for 
success, and I have confidence 
that the achievements of the 
Peace Corps in the coming years 
will justify the sacrifices and 
hopes of the first two."

A realistic look at the volun- 
teer.) 



Freshman, and this means you. 
Beginning next week you will be 
able to sign up for a seminar 
dealing with college goals and 
college life. An upperclassman 
will be leading a small group of 
eight to ten students as they ex- 
plore some aspect of their own 
choosing. Each group will meet 
once a week for six weeks. The 
groups will be informal and have 
a wide ran^e of possible settings. 
They will probably meet in dor- 
mitories. They may attend a con- 
cert together or invite a profes- 
sor to join in their discussion ex- 
perience. 

A major goal will be to help 
students acquire early in their 
college career a deepened appre- 
ciation for the intellectual oppor- 



tunities of a University. The 
leaders hope to stimulate stu- 
dents to search for their person- 
al educational and vocational 
goals in a very active fashion. 

This is an opportunity unique 
at the University. 

Freshman will be able to sign 
up for a seminar next week. De- 
tails will appear on the bulletin 
boards early next week 

For freshmen who are con- 
cerned about their own develop- 
ment and the type of life they 
wish to lead, for those who feel a 
sense of alienation and isolation, 
for those who just wish to sit 
down and discuss with their 
peers, the opportunity is now 
open. All are invited to sign up. 



Commons Improves Atmosphere 



The perrenial and longtime 
complaint of the University Din- 
ing Halls, its food, its atmos- 
phere and its attitudes can this 
year become a thing of the past. 
The changes which students have 
always stated in general terms 
can now be made specific and 
acted upon. It is possible now, 
where it was not possible before, 
due to the existence of a group 
of students to be known and rec- 
ognized as dining hall counselors 
who have been selected by the 
offices of the Dean of Men and 
the Dean of Women. 

The system is a very simple 
one, and yet very important if 
the changes wanted are to take 
place. These counselors will be 
available both during the eve- 
ning meal in the dining halls and 
in their respective residence halls 
for students suggestions relating 
to either food, operation or at- 



mosphere of the dining facilities. 
This program is an experiment 
now. It can work if it does not 
suffer from a malnutrition of 
ideas and a malingering of ef- 
fort. The results are in the hands 
of each individual student. This 
semester in the dining halls the 
students can write their tickets 
to an improved university.

Fashion, Fabric, And You 
Theme Of Educational Show 



"Fashion, fabrics and you" was 
presented yesterday before the 
School of Home Economics by 
Miss Helen Wright, Special Field 
Representative of Simplicity 
Pattern Co.. New York City. 

During her visit to the Uni- 
versity, Miss Wright also dis- 
cussed careers in the area of 
clothing and textiles and gave 
professional hints on up-to-date 
applications of visual aids in 
teaching clothing. 

Fall trends in fashion, color 
and fabric with suggestions on 
their interpretation for the indi- 
vidual, were illustrated in a 
wardrobe of fourteen garments 
planned for all hours and all 
activities. Beyond the facts and 
fancies of fashion, were the all- 
important aspects of construc- 
tion. Miss Wright summarized 
'inside secrets and tips' that lead 
to homemade garments with a 
professional look. 

Looking to the future, Miss 
Wright opened an informal dis- 
cussion session on "Careers in 
Clothing and Textiles", outlining 



current opportunities in both the 
fields of business and education. 
Aspiring teachers found points 
a-plenty in "Visual Aids in Your 
Clothing Program," as they were 
angled towards I he latest 
methods and techniques to the 
special area of teaching clothing. 
Miss Wright brought to her 
presentations an extensive back- 
ground in education and busi- 
ness. She graduated from Carne- 
gie Institute of Technology with 
a Bachelor of Science degree in 
costume economics and earned 
her Master of Arts degree from 
Columbia University Teachers 
College in clothing and textiles. 
She taught clothing and textiles 
before entering the business 
field as stylist and fabric consul- 
tant for a large department 
store. Since joining Simplicity, 
Miss Wright has traveled in 
every state, appearing before 
college and adult education 
groups, state-wide meetings and 
workshops devoted to home eco- 
nomics, and conventions of Home 
Demonstration Agents. 



K.K.G. Has New House Mother 



Delta Nu chapter is proud to 
introduce to the University Mrs. 
Donald Alderman as our new 
housemother. Prior to this year, 
she was a housemother at Alpha 
Phi sorority at U.C.L.A., and 
earlier in her life she was an ele- 
mentary school teacher. Through 
her son, David Alderman, presi- 
dent of Beta Kappa Phi at the 
University of Colorado, and her 
daughter-in-law. who was presi- 
dent of the Kappa Kappa Gamma 
chapter also at the University 
of Colorado, she has been in close 
contact with the Greek System 
for a number of years in many 
parts of our country. Her experi- 
ences at different campuses 
throughout the United States will 
be tremendously valuable for all 



of us at Kappa when we make 
the transition from our "ginger- 
bread" house on Lincoln Avenue 
to our new home. Mrs. Alderman 
expressed her belief that the 
value and goal of sorority life is 
to raise the standards of the in- 
dividual girl both scholastically 
and socially. Since a sorority is 
a relatively small and compact 
group, each member is able to 
devlop social graciousness to a 
higher degree than would other- 
wise be possible in a dormitory 
situation because of its larger 
size and more "business— like" 
management. A tea was given by 
the sisters of Kappa in honor of 
Mrs. Alderman Thursday eve- 
ning. September 26. At this time 
she was able to meet and speak

LAMBDA DELTA PHI 

After a beautiful— but — short 
summer, and a week's spree of 
painting and cleaning, the Lamb- 
da Phi's have finally "readjust- 
ed" to the unpredictable routine 
at UMass. 

We'd like to extend a glowing 
welcome and a heart-felt thank 
you to our new housemother, 
Mrs. Kirby. We know she'll play 
an integral part in what will be 
a very exciting year for Lambda 
Phi. 

Last week, we were delighted 
to receive our national President, 
Mrs. Paul Knight, and an alum- 
na, Mrs. George, for pre- 
senting us with the preliminary 
plans for our new house. It will 
indeed be a dream come true. 

A word of congratulations to 
TEP's President, Chuck Reid, on 
his engagement to our President,

the best happiness. 

SIGMA KAPPA SORORITY 

Life has come again to 19 Al-

SIGMA SIGMA SIGMA 

It seems like a dream come 
true that finally the Tri Sigmas 
have their house. The beginning 
of the school year found the sis- 
ters busily getting settled in the 
house on North Pleasant Street. 
To guide them in their new ad- 
venture is Mrs. Alice Drake, for- 
merly of Springfield. Also new 
at the sorority is Mrs. Parisi, our 
cook who has been making the 
sisters right at home with her 
tasty meals. 

Many thanks go to the house 
boys for their efficient job. 

In addition to organizing the 
house, the Tri Sigmas are in the 
midst of planning for Homecom- 
ing weekend when their alumnae 
will return to see the first home 
of the girls. 

The Chapter Inspection is 
scheduled for November eighth. 
At that time, Sigma Sigma Sig- 
ma will be hostess to Mrs. H. W. 
Morrison, the National Historian 
who will serve as inspector. 

Congratulations are extended 
to two of the alumnae: Dottie 
Adams and Linda Perley, offi- 
cers during the colonization of 
the chapter, who were married 
this summer.

There are three main purposes 
of the club: first, to promote 
good fellowship among the fa- 
culty and staff; secondly, to be 
of service to the university; and 
thirdly, to host many social func- 
tions. In short, It is the "social 
arm" of the university. 

Many activities are planned 
for this year, including: bowling, 
bridge, modern dancing, reading 
discussion, rifle practice, square 
dancing, swimming, and dancing. 
Faculty daughters are also in-

Surely there will be shouts of 
"Government Control" and "So-

doubtedly prove to be a wise 
move, instilling a little security

Tosca" Comes Monday 




Soprano Josephine Busalacchl will sin* the title role In Puccini's 
"Tosca," to be presented In English by the Goldovsky Grand 
Opera Theater on Monday, Sept. SO. at the I nlverslty of Massa- 
chusetts. 



New Dining Commons 
Under Construction 



The Goldovsky Grand Opera 
Theater, known throughout the 
country for its presentations of 
opera in English, will present 
Giacomo Puccini's "Tosca" on 
Monday, Sept. 30, at the Univer- 
sity of Massachusetts. 

The Goldovsky production is 
scheduled to start at p.m. in 
the Curry Hicks Men's Physi- 
cal Education building. 

"Tosca" is the first of eight 
musical events to be presented 
throughout the school year un- 
der sponsorship of the UMass 
Concert Association. 

Goldovsky's company of 50 in- 
cludes both orchestra and chor- 
us. Under the direction of Boris 
Goldovsky, the company places 
emphasis on opera's theatrical 
aspects. 

The Goldovsky group is now 
on its 10th national tour. 

Time magazine called the 
group "a fresh young company 
trained within an inch of its 
last high C." The "Baltimore 
Sun" summed up Goldovsky's 
approach as "The way opera 
should be given and seldom is." 
Puccini's tragic opera is 
based on a drama by Victorien 
Sardou. 

Josephine Busalacchi will 
sing the title role in Goldov- 
sky's production. Dean Wilder, 
Lucien Olivier and David Giosso 
will be seen in other leading 
parts. 
Students admitted free.

Member For 
Student Union 

Richard C. Davies, former 
recreation superintendent of the 
town of Wellesley, has joined 
the University staff as night su- 
pervisor of the Student Union. 

Davies graduated in 1953 from 
the State University of New 
York at Cortland. Before serv- 
ing as recreation superintendent 
for Wellesley, he held the same 
position in Irondequoit. N. Y. 

Davies served as a park com-

The architects have also con- 
sidered the need for more pleas- 
ant dining atmosphere. It is the 
first fully air conditioned build- 
ing on campus. The bottom 
floor will have four public en- 
trances (one at each corner of

Beginning at sundown this 
evening, the Jewish students of 
this campus and the Jews 
throughout the world will begin 
the observance of the twenty- 
four hour fast of Yom Klppur, 
the Day of Atonement. This 
holy day marks the end of Ya- 
miii Noralm, the ten day period 
of repentance which is known 
in English as the "Season of 
Repentance," and which com- 
mences with Rosh Hashanah. 

Rosh Hashanah falls on the 
tenth of Tishri, the seventh 
month of the Jewish year, and 
this year Rosh Hashanah ush- 
ered in the year 5724. According 
to the sages, this world was cre- 
ated on this day. This year as 
in every year since the exodus 
from Egypt, the followers of Ju- 
daism filled their temples and 
sanctuaries and prayed for for- 
giveness of their sins. The or- 
thodox and conservative Jews 
celebrate Rosh Hashanah for a 
period of two days, while the 
reformed Jews and those who 
live in Eratz Yisrael, the land of 
Israel, celebrate the holy daj 
for only one day. 

The former custom began af- 
ter the Roman conquest of Is- 
rael and the scattering of its 
inhabitants throughout the Ro- 
man Empire. It was believed 
that with the slow manner of 
communication then in use, plus 
the dispersion of the Jews, 
some communities might be 
late in beginning their peni- 
tence. The added day insured 
every Jew's observation of Rosh

Hashanah. 

Yom Kippur is the holiest of 
days in the Jewish year; more 
holy than the Sabbath day, for 
if any of the other fast days 
fall on a Saturday, the fast is 
not allowed to take p*lace. How- 
ever, one fasts on Yom Kippur 
no matter what day it falls on, 
even on Saturday. 

The evening before Yom Kip- 
pur, prayers are said in the 
temple. The whole congregation 
attends to hear this Kol Nidre 
Service. 

In this service, one declares 
that all vows and obligations 
not carried out are null and 
void. This prayer has great sig- 
nificance when seen in the con- 
text of Medieval Europe, in an 
era of forced conversions To 
Christianity and of promises 
made under the three t of the 
"rack" and other instruments 
of torture. 

The prayers said during Rosh 
Hashanah are prayers of praise 
to the Almighty, of poems 
chanted in such a manner that 
one need not have any ac- 
quaintance with the holy tongue 
to feel the meaning which is 
intended. 

The prayers of Yom Kippur 
are said in a grieving manner. 
Entreaties and supplications 
from sundown to sundown are 
heard within the temple. One of 
the most significant of the 
prayers is the El C hait, the con- 
fessional. Unlike the confession- 
als of other religions, the Jew- 
ish belief is that one is truly 
his Brother's keeper. Jews do 
not ask for the forgiveness of 
their own sins alone, nor of the 
saving of their souls. They 
pray for the forgiveness of the 
sins of all mankind. A Jew con- 
fesses not to his own sins only, 
but to the sins of all mankind. 
Thus, the Jewish welcome to 
the New Year is unique in this 
day and age aof revelry and bois- 
terousness as an occasion of 
reverence and heritage. When 
one meets a friend on the New 
Year, one says "I/eshana toba 
tikhath.hu." "May you be writ- 
ten down in the book of life for 
a good year." So may mankind 
live in peace and brotherhood 
for the coming year, and as a 
great rabbinic sage once said, 
"Greater is the merit of the 
transgressor who repents than 
that of the saint who has never 

sinned."

Connecticut Meets Yale 



STORRS. Conn.— If Connecti- 
cut defeats Yale at New Haven 
in the football season opener for 
both schools this Saturday, the 
Huskies from Storrs will not be 
setting a precedent. Dartmouth 
was unsuccessful in 14 trips to 
New Haven before finally com- 
ing out on top in its 15th at- 
tempt. 

There is a historical precedent 
which indicates the time is ripe 
for a UConn victory. Dartmouth, 
another New Haven invader 
from the north, made 14 pilgrim- 
ages to the Elm City before the 
football Indians were able to re- 
turn to their rural haunts at 
Hanover, N.H., with a Bulldog 
scalp. Yale emerged with 11 wins 
and three ties prior to 1935 when 
the Big Green began acting like 
it owned the concrete kennel of 
the Bulldogs and ripped off a 
14-6 victory. That was Dart- 
mouth's 15th football trip to New 
Haven. This is also UConn's 15th 
try for the prize in the series. 



Connecticut has come very 
close to victory in two of its last 
three trips to Yale. A field goal 
by VVally Grant won for the Elis, 
11-8, in 1960; and victory was 
in sight last year when Randy 
Egloff took a short pass from 
Tim O'Connell about midway in 
the final period and took off on 
a 34-yard scoring play which 
saved the day for old Elihu 
Yale. 18-14. 

This year, Coach Bob Ingalls 
of UConn feels his strong run- 
ning game will be augmented by 
an improved aerial attack with 
battle tested veterans Lou Aceto, 
a junior from Hamden, and Doug 
GafTney, a senior from Verona, 
N.J., as the bombardiers. 

Five men who were listed as 
starters for Connecticut in last 
year's opener at Yale again find 
themselves cast in this role. They 
are Dick Kupec, a junior from 
Ossining, N.Y., who was left 
guard a year ago; Jeff McCon- 
nell. a senior from Poughkeepsie. 



N.Y., at right tackle; Lou Aceto, 
a junior from Hamden, at quar- 
terback; Capt. Dave Korponai, a 
senior from Stratford, at right 
half; and Dave Roberts, a junior 
from Meriden, who is almost a 
sure bet as a starter at fullback. 

Coach Ingalls states he may 
not decide on his starting full- 
back until the toss of the coin 
which traditionally starts a foot- 
ball game. He's thinking of prob- 
ably sending Brian Smith, a 
Hartford junior, to the deep po- 
sition. 

Ingalls is set on the rest of his 
starting lineup, announced previ- 
ously this week, as follows: Nick 
Rossetti, a junior from York- 
town, Heights, N.Y., and Joe 
Simeone, a Brooklyn, N.Y., sen- 
ior, both starters by the close of 
last season, at the ends; Joe 



DeLucia, a Cheshire senior, at 
tackle along with McConnell; 
Roy Kristensen of Nyack, N.Y., 
and Joe Licata of Peekskill, N.Y., 
both juniors and members of the 
defensive until last fall, at 
guards; and Larry Reed, a jun- 
ior from Peekskill who was a 
defensive halfback until injured 
in *62, at left halfback. 

Coach Ingalls isn't sure wheth- 
er or not he'll substitute by units 
or by groups of four or five. 
However, he has stated he feels 
the second unit has deevloped 
satisfactorily and could possibly 
go into the battle all at once. 

Making up the second unit line 
are senior Mark Klausner of 

Wallingford and junior Larry 

Uda of Bridgeport, ends; senior

Redmen Clash With Crimson 

In N.E.'s Top Grid Contest 



by STEVE "BRUCE" HEWEY 

"This will be the toughest 
opener since 1957." These are the 
words of Harvard University 
Football Coach John Yovicsin as 
he views tomorrow's clash with 
the University of Massachusetts 
at Harvard Stadium. 



The Redmen-Crimson meeting 
is shaping up as the top grid fea- 
ture among the college elevens 
in New England this weekend. . 

ACCORDING TO veteran ob- 
servers a crowd of between 18,- 
000 and 20,000 will be expected 
to be on hand when last year's 



Ivy League runner-up begins its 
1963 schedule with last Fall's 
Yankee Conference runner-up. 

One can be sure that Yovicsin 
has plenty of respect for Satur- 
day's opponent and some reser- 
vations about how his boys will 
meet the task 



After watching UM in action 
against Maine last week he de- 
clared, "Massachusetts has a 
veteran team, and is deep in 
talent. And you can bet that 
they'll be ready and eager to 
beat Harvard. We've still got a 
lot of work ahead this week be-

fore we're ready for them." 

THERE IS good justification 
for the Harvard coach's somber 
appraisal of his team's opener 
with UM. The Crimson had no 
spring practice. The Redmen al- 
ready have one game under their 
belts, and reports filtering in 
from Cambridge the past few 
weeks show that Harvard has 
not been as spirited and as im- 
proving with time as Crimson 
teams of past seasons. If Yovic- 
sin means what he says then the 
Redmen can expect a well drilled 
if not ready opponent. 

Tomorrow's game, incidentally, 
marks the eighth meeting of the 
two schools. The Redmen own a 
13 to 7 win over Harvard in 1954, 
and 1960, the last contest be- 
tween the two, UMass trounced 
the Crimson 27 to 12. 

HARVARD HAS WON the 
other five contests. 

UMass has also been hard at 
work this week smoothing the 
bumps that showed in their of- 
fense and defense at Maine last 
Saturday. This will be the first 
time in three years at UMass 
that Vic Fusia has faced Har- 
vard and he wants this game as 
badly as the Redmen head coach 
wants every game. The players, 
too, are going all out. They view 
the Harvard game as a fine op- 
portunity to win those little let- 
ters that Fusia has promised 
them for their superb work on 
the field. 

THOSE WHO ALREADY re- 
ceived several for standout play 
aaginst Maine will be out to add 
more. Those who have yet to get 
any will be batting to get their 
share. 

Statistics released this week 
show that quarterback Jerry 
Whelchel is the Redmen leader 
in total offense after one game. 
Whelchel has completed 8 of 12 
passes for 100 yards and has car- 
ried 11 times for 32 yards for a 
total output of 132 yards. 

Halfback Ken Palm leads his 
teammates in rushing with 66 
yards in 11 tries while halfback 
Fred Lewis has 56 yards for 11 
carries. 

IN THE PASS receiving de- 
partment Sophomore Bob Meers 
leads with 4 receptions for 82 
yards. Palm has caught two for 
7 yards and Milt Morin one. 
good for 19 yards. 

For tomorrow's game Vic Fusia 
plans to go with the same stat- 
ing eleven he employed at 
Maine. At the ends will be jun- 
ior John Hudson and sophomore

Student Activities Night UMASS PRECISIONETTES' 
Scheduled For Tuesday FUTURE ROLE IN DOURT 



With the college year under- 
way most students have come 
to the realization that the idea 
of studying 'all the time' is 
quite impractical. Some change 
of pace is necessary, and the use 
of free time can provide this 
necessary change. Organizations 
on our campus offer interesting 
and profitable memberships to 
students who want to use this 
time to their own and their col- 
lege's advantage. 

On Student Activities Night, 
Tuesday, October 1 from 7 to 9 
P.M. these organizations will be 

UMass Tiddly 
Team Bested 
At Harvard 

A determined and enthusiastic 
University of Massachusetts Tid- 
dlywink team invaded Harvard 
Yard Saturday morning to do 
battle with a veteran Harvard 
squad. 

The outcome of the contest 
was easily forecastable, with the 
Harvard Tiddlyers swamping the 
valiant Redmen 27-7. 

THE CRIMSON team which has 
been beaten only once in inter- 
collegiate play, and that by En- 
gland's Oxford University, treat- 
ed the visiting Redmen with the 
utmost of courteousness, even to 
the point of teaching the game 
to the four-man UMass squad. 

Harvard's challenge to UMass 
was extended Friday afternoon, 
and after a diligent search was 
made, the University of Massa- 
chusetts fighting Tiddlywink 
squad was formed, and Harvard's 
challenge accepted. 

The Tiddly team members, 
Jeff Davidow, Bill Mahoney, 
George Pierce. Alec Woodle and 
Richard Perlmutter had no op- 
portunity to practice before Sat- 
urday morning's confrontation 
and consequently went into the 
meet cold. 

IN THE FIRST of five matches 
a strong GUTS (Harvard's Gor- 
goyle Undergraduate Tiddlywink 
Society) duo of Bachelor and Ha- 
ger captured first and second 
places to defeat Mahoney and 
Pierce 6-1. 

The high spot of this contest 
was the scoring of a Carnofsky 
by Harvard's Hager. A Carnof- 
sky is roughly equivalent to a 
hole in one in the golfing world 
and is equally as rare. Hager's 
staggering feat was the first of- 
ficial Carnofsky of the 1963 In- 
tercollegiate Tiddlywink season. 

UMass lost the following three 
contests by the same score, 6-1, 
and it was only in the fifth game 
that the UM Redmen squad, in 
the persons of Davidow and 
Woodle, came to life. 

PLAYING a Harvard team 
which consisted of Hank 
Schwartz, a senior member of 
GUTS and Miss Carol McDaniel,

room. Freshmen are urged to at- 
tend so that they may become 
acquainted with these groups 
and have the opportunity to ask 
any questions concerning mem- 
bership or activities of the 
groups. 

A student needs lie not only in 
the educative process of lectures, 
meeting professors, and study- 
ing. Beyond this there is the im- 
portant concern of learning to 
work with others. Students who 
want to be involved in planning 
and arranging important events, 
who want the satisfaction of 
completing a well planned proj- 
ect, who want the friendship of 
others whose interests are simi- 
lar; these students will find an 
important part of the educative 
process lies here with student or- 
ganizations. 



by ELWIN MrNAMABA 

The game with Harvard ush- 
ered in a new era for the Preci- 
sionettes. This is the first year 
in which they have not been 
alone in the spotlight. 

The coming of a new band di- 
rector heralds the coming of a 
new and larger band, one which 
will be able to perform its forma- 
tions without what Dean of Stu- 
dents Field has called the "able 
assistance of the Precisionettes." 
In years ahead, the band will be 
so large (100-150 members) that 
it will not be physically possible 
for both organizations to per- 
form at the same time. 

It is this problem which now 
confronts both band and Preci- 
sionettes. They must decide 
when and where the Precision- 
ettes will perform. Many sugges- 
tions have been brought forth 



with the major ones being the 
pre-game show, a possible side- 
line routine and performance at 
basketball games. 

Dean Field emphasized most 
strongly that this is not the end 



of the group, in fact he said that 
"they are too good to let disap- 
pear." He said that they could, 
if they wished, ''maintain them- 
selves independent of the band"

Letters To The Editor 



THE READERS COUNTER 



Wiping away the tears which are flowing from my 
eyes after hearing a new chapter from the "Perils of Paul- 
line," in which the heroine of the melodrama is forced to 
share a dormitory room with six other girls and a retired 
janitor, I sit down at my typewriter to say something which 
needs to be said. 

I feel terribly sorry for all the Paulines and Pauls on 
this campus who are living in crowded quarters. It is un- 
fortunate and without a doubt inconvenient, but not dis- 
asterous. 

It is the purpose of this University, as a public insti- 
tution, to educate as many people as possible. If the admin- 
istration feels that it can academically accommodate 8300 
students or 83,000 students then it should and must do so 
or it is failing in its purpose. 

The fact that a good portion of these students are liv- 
ing in crowded conditions is undoubtedly important, but 
this should not act as a deterrent to the University's plans 
to educate 20,000 people a year by 1975. 

Those penple who would urge the administration to cut 
back on the number of entering students so that those here 
now would not have to suffer the inconvenience of living 
in a triple, or waiting in a longer Commons line, or having 
less parking space, are indeed some of the most selfish in- 
dividuals in existence. To deny to some deserving peron the 
opportunity to attend his own state university, one that he 
and his family are supporting, and one where he is able to 
get a top quality education for bargain basement prices is 
even more than selfish; it is cruel. 

I personally don't care if people are sleeping on their 
heads in Van Meter or Hills. As long as they are getting 
the decent education they came here for, their sleeping 
problems are relatively unimportant. 

Yes, Student Senate and faculty committees which are 
instituted to study the problem are a good thing, and who 
knows, maybe something good will come of them. But this 
too is secondary. 

Any person who fesls unduly cramped and crowded in 
the University community has every opportunity to leave. 
In other words, if you don't like it here, get out. For every 
one of you, there are five back in your home town who would 
gladly swap places; triples and long lines included. Be 
thankful for what you have. Stop complaining and get to 
work. J.S.D.

BewareL.The Communist Menace 

To the editor, 

There are, evidently, some people who are not blinded by the 
"hate communists because they're against us" propaganda as demon- 
stated by the article, "Partners Not Antagonists", which appeared 
in a recent Collegian. The author of that article was not blinded by 
that kind of propaganda, instead, she was blinded by another kind. 
Her kind is "the peace if it kills us" type. 

Miss Burllngame K apparently quite perplexed because the 
I'nlted States and the Soviet I'nlon won't reconcile their "trivial" 
difference)* and become friends like all good nations ought to be. 
After all, she nays, we both want the same goal-world peace. What 
If our methods are slightly different? 

Well, Miss Burlingame's argument is rather ludicrous because 
of her faulty assumption. The United States and the Soviet Union 
are not after the same goal. The United States and the Soviet Union 
could never reconcile their differences, because those differences 
are too grtat. 

There js one basic difference between the two ideologies. Under 
capitalism it is the state's function to serve the individual. Under 
communism it is the individual's function to serve the state. Thus 
under the Soviets the concept of individuality is an absurdity. The 
two ideologies are antithetical and mutually exclusive. They can not 
be reconciled, not ever. 

There is only one possible road to world peace. The existence 
of one ideology. 

Wlh two dlff rent ways of life there It conflict. If you have con- 
flict, you very obviously can not have peace. There Is not too much 
hope for the I'nlted Staes If many Americans are as naive as Miss 
Burllngame seems to be. There Is a difference and that difference 
must be recognised for what It Is— otherwise we Just might have 
world peace, the communist kind. 

John Medelros 66 



To the Editor: 

Nineteen voted "no" ... It 
seems only nineteen realized 
that the United States could 
not rely on this treaty . . . 
only nineteen realized that 
the treaty was not all that 
it seemed at first glance. 

Yes, the eighteen men, af- 
ter whose name John Childs 
places an "A" as Advocates 
of Atomic destruction, seem 
to be the only Senators who 
looked into the test ban 
treaty and not at it. They 
are the ones who asked 
themselves what the treaty 
would acomplish. To get the 
answer they sought the ex- 
pert advice of America's mil- 
itary and scientific men. 

The military is against 
the treaty'; that is, all but 
the military bureaucrats 
who owe their positions to 
the President. The treaty 
contains within it the real 
possibility of weakening the 
military position of the 
United States. 

How great is the possibil- 
ity of reducing the amount 
of fallout in the atmosphere 
with the signing of the test 
ban? In the stage of nuclear 
development that the U.S. 
and Russia have now 
reached, the amount of fall- 
out is considerably less than 
when they first began test- 
ing. The amount of fallout 
which would result in atmos- 
pheric testing by the U.S. 
and Russia would not in- 
crease the amount of fallout 
in the atmosphere now. 
However, certain nations, 
Red China, France, Israel 
and Egypt, have begun de- 
velopment of nuclear weap- 
ons on their own. In their 
early stages of testing they 
will be exploding in the at- 
mosphere dirty bombs — that 
is, bombs which will result 
in a large amount of fallout. 
Would it not be wiser for the 
U.S. to share its atomic se- 
crets with its allies and for 
Russia to do the same so 
that these countries will not 
subject the entire world to 
a greater increase of nuclear 
fallout. Instead, the U.S. rat- 
ified a test ban which pro- 
hibits the sharing of atomic 
information with nations 
who are not already mem- 
bers of the atomic circle. 
How much nuclear fallout 
can the peoples of the world 
stand before health and life 
is sacrificed. 

Yes, John Childs, nineteen 
men voted "no." Nineteen 
men realized that Krushchev 
was now signing the same 
test ban offered him in 1959. 
Krushchev now believes that 
his weapons which required 
atmospheric testing are fully 
capable of doing the job re- 
quired of them. He is now 
ready to show the world that 
he and Russia desire peace.

Re: The Berlin Wall 
Dear Mr. Gorvine, 

When first I occasioned to read your column (VOL. XCIII NO. 
1). I must confess that I was impressed. I felt that at last a voice 
was rising out of the apathetic UMass community to speak in words 
uncensored and full of a fresh vitality. 

Today, however, when I read through your column (VOL. 
XCIII NO. 3). I could not believe my eyes. "There must be some 
subtle point I missed which gives the proper light to the matter," 
I said to myself. But no — after having read it through four more 
times I found that my original horror was justified. 

Mr. Gorvine, there are many bold and individualistic voices in 
the world. In this manner they attain one thing: they are heard. But 
when basic good sense is lacking in their words, they attain some- 
thing else as well: the distinction of being just one more loud- 
mouthed ignoramus in this already sorely over-supplied world. 

Please, Mr. Gorvine, continue to use your talented loud mouth. 
But don't become so carried away with your impressive style that 
you leave reason and intelligence behind. 

John Kriegel '66 

The Physostomous Phthiriasis 

The John Birch Society 

by Sam Gorvine 

The John Birch Society believes in the defeat of the 
worldwide Communist conspiracy. It is an admirable aim. 
This conspiracy DOES exist. It has a number of concrete 
goals which it pursues with varying intensity. The Society 
is correct thus far. 

The gap between the reality of the world and the John 
Birch society's world arises when it identifies with the 
Communist conspiracy, people or organizations who pursue 
the same goals for their own reasons. Their reasoning fol- 
lows this pattern: All cats chase rats; All dogs chase rats, 
therefore, all dogs are cats. 

It's amazing to listen to. Item: one of the organiza- 
tions which the Communists would like to control is Civil 
Rights. 

Bircher: Martin Luther King is a Communist. 
Me: How do you figure that? 

Bircher: Because integration and disruption of state's 
rights are two of the keystones of the Party line. 

Me: Did it ever occur to you that King may want in- 
tegration because he's a Negro? 

Bircher: Well, of course but he's a Communist to; we 
KNOW that! 

Me: How do you KNOW that? 

Bircher: From the things he's written and the organ- 
izations he belongs to. 

Me: What, for instance? 

Bircher: Well, I don't have copies with me, but he doe3 
belong to the NAACP you know, and that's a Communist 
front. 

Me: Oh, it IS?? 

Bircher: Of course! It follows the party line, doesn't it? 

Me: (At this point words usually fail me.) 

Bircher: You just don't understand these things, Sam. 
Take for instance Eisenhower . . . 

Me: YOU take him. 

Bircher: Seriously, there is a lot in what Welsh said 
about his being a Communist. Just look at his record. In 
the eight years he was president the Communists made tre- 
mendous gains all over the world . . . 

Me: It's all easily explains by the fact that Eisenhower 
was a fool. 

Bircher: Was he? He was promoted from the rank of 
Lieutenant Colonel to supreme commander of Allied Forces 
in Europe. It is known that he had dinner a number of 
times and was extremely close with the Roosevelts, and 
there's no doubt that they were Communists. 

Me: Oh, none at all! ** 

Bircher: See how clear things get when you can see 
th REAL patterns behind things? 

Me: YUH. Did you hear about the Giant's releasing 
Guglielmi? 1*11 tell you, after Sunday's game . . .

To John Childs 

False Inference 

Mr. Childs, do you know why the senators who voted 

against the test ban treaty did so? Can you honestly state 
that these leaders are for atomic destruction? Is this the 
reason that they saw fit to oppose the ratification of the 
treaty ? 

The fact that these 19 Senators voted against ratifica- 
tion does not necessarily infer that they are "Advocates of 
Atomic Destruction," as you have stated, but that they may 
seen another and possibly much better way to prevent this 
destruction. Before you make open statements, Mr. Childs, 
I suggest that you check your premises.

WORDS: THEIR CAUSE AND CURE 

Today let us take up the subject of etymology (or entomology, 
as it is sometimes called) which is the study of word origins 
(or insects, as they ore sometimes called). 

Where are word origins (insects) to be found? Well sir, some- 
times words are proper names which have passed into the 
language. Take, for instance, the words used in electricity: 
ampere was named after its discoverer, the Frenchman Andre 
Marie Ampere (1775-1836); similarly, ohm was named after 
the German G.S. Ohm (1781-1854), watt after the Scot James 
Watt (1736-1819), and bulb after the American Fred C. Bulb 
(1843-1912). 

There is, incidentally, quite a poignant little story about 
Mr. Bulb. Until Bulb's invention, all illumination was pro- 
vided by gas, which was named after its inventor Milton T. Gas 









('■■1 ' '" ' Y V > "l^jj*^«te»- 




wh (w tiiitftfws icmA biped 



who, strange to tell, had been Bulb's roommate at Cal Tech ! 
In fact, strange to tell, the third man sharing the room with 
Bulb and Gas was also one whose name burns bright in the 
annals of illumination— Walter Candle! 

The three roommates were inseparable companions in col- 
lege. After graduation all three did research in the problems 
of artificial light, which at this time did not exist. All America 
used to go to bed with the chickens, and many fine citiiens were, 
alas, severely injured falling off the roost. 

Well sir, the three comrades— Bulb, Gas, and Candle- 
promised to be friends forever when they left school, but 
success, alas, spoiled all that. First Candle invented the can- 
dle, got rich, and forgot his old friends. Then Gas invented gas, 
got rich, bankrupted Candle, and forgot his old friends. Then 
Bulb invented the bulb, got rich, bankrupted Gas, and forgot 
his old friends. 

Candle and Gas, bitter and impoverished at the ages respec- 
tively of 75 and 71, went to sea as respectively the world's 
oldest and second oldest cabin boy. Bulb, rich and grand, also 
went to sea, but he went in style— as a first-class passenger on 
luxury liners. 

Well sir, strange to tell, all three were aboard the ill-fated 
Lusitania when she was sunk in the North Atlantic. And 
strange to tell, when they were swimming for their lives after 
the shipwreck, all three clambered aboard the same dinghy 1 

Well sir, chastened and made wiser by their brush with peril, 
they fell into each other's arms and wept and exchanged for- 
giveness and became fast friends all over again. 

For three years they drifted in the dinghy, shaking hands 
and singing the Cal Tech rouser all the while. Then, at long 
last, they spied a passing liner and were taken aboard. 

They remained fast friends for the rest of their days, which, 
I regret to report, were not many, because the liner which picked 
them up was the Titanic. 

What a pity that Marlboros were not invented during the 
lifetimes of Bulb, Gas, and Candle. Had there been Marlboros, 
these three friends never would have grown apart because they 
would have realized how much, despite their differences, they 
still had in common. I mean to say that Marlboros can be lit by 
candle, by gas, and by electricity, and no matter how you 
light them, you always get a lot to like—a filter, a flavor, a 
pack or box that makes anyone -including Bulb, Gas, and Can- 
dle-settle back and forswear pettiness and smile the sweet 
•mile of friendship on all who pass !

HOUSING; THE STUDENTS' 

An Open Letter To Students and Faculty 

My reason in writing this letter is to express my con- 
cern for the health and welfare of my fellow students. My- 
self and thirty-four other young men have been made the 
unfortunate victims of an ambitious university. A univer- 
sity dedicated to the principle of mass education ; education 
of the many, however, at the expense of the few. The few 
namely, myself and my comrades. 

Students; hear me out. This could happen to you. 
When I received my housing form it read, "H-2 Hamp- 
shire House." Unassuming enough, to be sure. But little 
did I know what evil lurked in the heart of Him in charge 
of housing. How was I to know? After all, the Undergrad- 
uate Bulletin clearly stated that, "Physical growth has 
been carefully planned, with provisions for additional build- 
ings and facilities to accommodate an enrollment of 10,000 
within the next decade." 

When I first gazed upon Hampshire House (renamed 
for our little friends who keep us company at night) I had 
the feeling I had seen my new home before. Then I remem- 
bered where it was I had seen it. Yes, of course, it was in 
"West Side Story." Remember when Tony was singing to 
Maria? I was thrilled! To think I would be living in the 
same building where "West Side Story" was filmed! I ran 
up the back steps in eager anticipation of finding my room. 
Or was it my room-mate? I can't quite remember those last 
few moments before I tripped over the tricycle, "retrograde 
amnesia" the doctor called it. 

It was the crying of a little boy that finally revived 
me. I guess it was his tricycle. I staggered into the dorm 
and made my way through the baby carriages and cap- 
pistols, and all the rest of the paraphernalia those caprici- 
ous little gargoyles play with, and I soon found my room. 
And I use the word "room" loosely. Having brought my 
trunk and the rest of the necessities for college living into 
my room, I could not help but reflect upon how lucky I was 
— to have such a nice view. From the amount of space I had 
in my suite, I soon realized that a few natural laws were 
about to be challenged in the next few months. For example, 
that age-old adage that all high school teachers preach, 
"Two objects may not occupy the same place in space at 
the same time." Tripe, I say. I and my roommate have been 
disproving that theory for two weeks. 

Aside from a few meaningless natural laws being shat- 
tered, my fellow-residents and I have discovered that our 
iconoclasm has extended into the field of Public Health also. 

The men's room on our floor is unique in that it is con- 
tinually flooded. The only explanation for this is that the 
architect of this mausoleum obviously thought he was de- 
signing a road, not a floor, because the water runs from the 
middle of the floor to the sides, in the same manner that 
water runs off a macadam highway. This tends to create a 
small problem due to the fact that the drainage eventually 
finds a resting place in the hallway to be carried off to the 
individual rooms by the residents with the largest feet. It's 
not the smell nor the itching of athlete's foot that bothers 
us so much ; but the amount of money we have to pay for 
new socks and talcum powder, to prevent our private little 
disease from running rampant, would be, if pooled, more 
than enough to maintain our own private physician. 

To move on to greener pastures, the noise level is quite 
reasonable during the twilight hours when most of us do 
our studying. It has been calculated as being between 480- 
520 decibles, or, in layman's language, that amount of noise 
comparable to the warming up of seven B-52's. 

The boys of Berkshire and Plymouth Houses, particu- 
larly the freshmen, are a great bunch of guys, as they'll 
readily tell you any time of night or day. They are very- 
well-informed for they all have radios, and they all use 
them— at once, usually at night. I've often thought of what 
the consequences might be, if they ever played over the 
radio the tune that Joshua blew at Jericho. This campus 
would be reduced to rubble in an inkling. 

I would like to suggest one thing that this house could 
use — a marriage counselor. For as Bill, who lives upstairs, 
pointed out to his wife the other night for four and one-half 
hours, the only way they are going to make a go of their 
marriage is to talk their problems out. 

Perhaps I have been a bit harsh and even selfish in my 
evaluation of the living conditions here in Hampshire House, 
the University of Massachusetts' answer to the Warsaw 
Ghetto, but a greater writer once wrote, "Every man's writ- 
ing slants in the direction he leans. Although many men are 
born upright, none are born perpendicular." 

Sincerely, 

David C. Whiting 'G6 



OPINION 

A Modest Proposal 

by MIKE HENCH 

For alleviating the great 
difficulties due to overcrowd- 
ing in the University dormi- 
tories. 

It is a melancholy object 
to those, who walk through 
the University dormitories; 
when they see masses of 
Bodies piled one atop the 
other in all manner of dis- 
array. 

It is my intention to pro- 
vide only for those who are 
so cramped that they cannot 
write, so crowded that they 
cannot scream for help, ow- 
ing to the facts that their 
lungs are insufferably 
screamed. 

Since it costs $100 or 
more for one to arrive in 
this hapless state, I propose 
to provide for all those 
aforementioned, who have 
served a brief Orientation 
tenure, in such a manner a3 
to reduce the overall cost 
and increase the benefits. 

The number of souls at 
the University being usually 
reckoned at 8300 ; of these I 
calculate that no less than 
half are in the aforemen- 
tioned condition. The ques- 
tion therefore is, how this 
Number shall be reared and 
provided for. 

I shall now therefore 
humbly propose my own 
thoughts; which I hope will 
not be liable to the least ob- 
jection. 

I have been assured by a 
very knowing European of 
my acquaintance that 
Friends, true Friends, can 
occupy far less space than 
non-friends or un-friends. 

It has been reckoned that 
two Friends, regardless of 
sex, can occupy a space of 
as little as 13 inches. Now, 
since each bed on campus is 
of relatively uniform width, 
and Friends come in differ- 
ent sizes, usually paired in 
such a manner that the 
small is with the large and 
vice versa (as is the current 
state of affairs in most of 
the world), it follows ipso 
facto that there is plenty of 
room for each Couple. 

It has also been noted 
that in many cases desks 
have been moved out of 
rooms so that beds might be 
moved in. Now if the 
Friends are united, some of 
the beds are moved out (and 
perhaps sold to pay for reg- 
istration sticker appliers) 
and the desks are moved 
back in, the insufferable tur- 
moil will be ended, and 
learning will be more widely 
disseminated. 

Further, those non-friends 
and un-friends will be joined 
together to form new bonds, 
which will , of necessity, 
make for a still greater re- 
duction in the number of 
beds. 

This proposal will further

1963-64 school year. 

The Schola Cantorum, Neth- 
erlands String Quartet, Toronto 
Symphony Orchestra, Raymond 
Hansen- and Leonard Seeber, 
New York Brass Quintet, Robert 
Joffrey Ballet and Greenwich 
Quartet will also appear at the 
University during the year. 

Boris Goldovsky, commentator 
on the weekly matinee broad- 
casts from the Metropolitan 
Opera House and well-known re- 
searcher in the field of acoustic 
scenery, will supervise every de- 
tail of "Tosca." 

Goldovsky's company of 50 — 
which includes its own singers, 
orchestra and chorus — is now in 
its 18th year and on its 10th 
national tour. 

In the past several years, the 
Goldovsky Grand Opera Theater 
has presented "Rigoletto," "Don 
Giovanni," "The Barber of Se- 
ville" and "Traviata." 

Newspapers and magazines 
have called Goldovsky's produc- 
tions and approach to opera "a 
rousing success" and "a new 
breath of life in the operatic 
world." 

Goldovsky and his company 
place emphasis on the theatrical 
aspect of opera. 

According to Goldovsky, an 
audience becomes fully involved 
in an opera's action, stage busi- 
ness and character portrayal 
when the opera is presented in 
the audience's own language. 

Technical innovations in the 
production of "Tosca" include a 
Goldovsky - designed sound - re- 
flecting fiberglass ceiling, loud- 
speakers and other electronic 
devices mounted backstage. 

Lucien Oliver, David Giosso, 
Dean Wilder and Josephine Bu- 
salacchi are scheduled to sing the 
leading roles in "Tosca."

Students 
Can Help 
At Hospital 

For the past three years Uni- 
versity of Massachusetts stu- 
dents have worked in conjunc- 
tion with a socialization project 
connected with the Northampton 
State Mental Hospital. The role 
of the student has been to par- 
ticipate in one of the many pro- 
grams involving direct activity 
with patients at the hospital. 
Two of the most popular pro- 
grams have been those of remo- 
tivation and socialization occur- 
ring on Wednesday and Thurs- 
day nights respectively. 

This year the student volun- 
teer program at the Hospital is 
solely in the hands of the Hospi- 
tal's volunteer director and the 
colleges and universities in the 
area. The plans for the program 
include greatly expanded parti- 
cipation by the students of Am- 
herst, Mt. Holyoke, and SmITh 
Colleges, and the University of 
Massachusetts. Some response 
can also be expected from A.I.C., 
Springfield College, and several 
of the teacher's colleges in Wes- 
tern Massachusetts. 

Just what can the student do 
for the person who is suffering 
from a mental disturbance? In 
only two hours spent with the 
patients once a week, you can ac- 
complish quite a bit. Whether it 
be arts and crafts, music, ath- 
letics, remotivation, drama, or 
social activities, the patient sens- 
es and appreciates your presence, 
and the idea that you are spend- 
ing time with him. Seven days 
a week, patients follow the same 
routine. They eat, sleep, work, 
and talk with the same people 
day after day. They welcome the 
opportunity to talk and work 
with young, fresh people. Won't

Second of Three Articles 



A REALISTIC LOOK AT THE VOLUNTEER 



by Roger Ebert 
For Collegiate Press Service 

(Editor's Note: Mr. Ebert. 
president of the USSPA and ed- 
itor of The Daily Mini, was one 
of the four editors to spend one 
week in Washington recently to 
edit the Peace Corps News, a 
supplement to campus newspap- 
ers that appears twice yearly. 
This is the second of a three part 
article on the Peace Corps.) 

WASHINGTON. D.C. (OPS) — 
"In most of the world, it's six 
o'clock in the morning— and it's 
dead," Dave Pearson said. 

"When the Peace Corps Volun- 
teer moves from a highly mobile 
society into a sleepy, dawning 
world where progress is slow and 
sometimes feared, he must adapt 
rapidly if he is to be successful." 

Pearson, a Peace Corps infor- 
mation officer, said it has been 
this challenge— and not the ster- 
eotyped dangers of mud huts, 
savage natives, and wild ani- 
mals — that has created the most 
problems for Volunteers in the 
field. 

During the first two years of 
Peace Corps operation, Volun- 
teers had few complaints about 
living and working conditions. 
Indeed, many governments went 
out of their way to see that 
Corpsmen had adequate living 
conditions. 

But over and over, field repre- 
sentatives heard stories of lone- 
liness, boredom and solitude. In 
many areas, Volunteers were the 
only people with an advanced ed- 
ucation, or even with the ability 
to read and write. 

"Yet these Volunteers were 



bright, inquisitive young people 
accustomed to a fast-moving so- 
ciety," Pearson said. "To them, 
the apathy and the quiet were 
actual enemies, particularly for 
Volunteers living by themselves." 

Almost all Volunteers managed 
to succeed in spite of these prob- 
lems, however, and in many 
cases they reported that for the 
first time in their lives they 
were learning to "really live." 

"I had been exposed to an ed- 
ucation," Volunteer Ralph Gil- 
man, working on a Ghana pro- 
ject, said. "But I began to feel 
I'd had enough of second-hand 
knowledge which had been picked 
over for my consumption. Now 
was the time to learn directly 
from people struggling in life." 

Gilman found the slow, under- 
developed society of Ghana a 
challenge. But in it he found a 
need to be fulfilled in himself 
as well as in the society. 

"Americans of my generation 
have inherited a healthy and 
abundant country," he wrote. 
"But this good fortune implies 
the responsibility of some con- 
structive use — responsibilities to 
the people yearning for an edu- 
cation. 

"We tend to become so in- 
volved with our fraternities, our 
jobs, our competition for an edu- 
cation, and our courtship sys- 
tem, that we forget to ask: to 
what end? After asking myself 
these questions, I concluded th it 
I hadn't found all the answers 
in school. 

"And so I came to Ghana — not 
because I feel sorry that others 
are not like me, and not out of 



sloppy, superior pity— but be- 
cause they asked and I am able 
to help." 

Volunteers such as Gilman, 
with the ability to see long-range 
purposes behind short-term 
Peace Corps projects, are needed 
if the Peace Corps is to become 
a significant, permanent force for 
world improvement, Pearson 
said. 

"Peace Corps service is not 
glamorous," he said in a CPS 
interview. "We've never said it 
was. It's hard, and tiring, and 
sometimes discouraging. 

"And so the question before 
us is: now that the newspapers, 
in interviewing returning Volun- 
teers, have made it clear that 
boredom and apathy go hand-in- 
hand with excitement and pro- 
gress in the Corps, will young 
Americans still be willing to take 
up the burden?" 

The answer, Peace Corps of- 
ficials believe, can be found in 
the American student commun- 
ity. "The Corps has no corner 
on the idea market," Pearson 
emphasized. 

And Sargent Shriver, Peace 
Corps Director, told 1200 stu- 
dents at the National Student 
Congress, held in August at In- 
diana University; 

"I am here to solicit your ad- 
vice in the months ahead . . . 
with that continuing support, 
you and other Americans will 
continue to build a program that 
represents the highest traditions 
of this nation."

Amherst Opera To Present '// Trovatore 9 University Faculty 



On October 18 and 19 at 8:15 
p.m., at Amherst Regional High 
School, the Amherst Community 
Opera Company in celebration of 
the 150th anniversary of the 
birth of Giuseppe Verdi, will 
present this year's production, 
a favorite ever since its first per- 
formance at the Apollo Theater 
in Rome on January 18, 1853. 

A long roster of highly com- 
petent people have been working 
hard ever since before the first 
rehearsal on July 10, under the 
lusical direction of Prof. Edwin 

>ndon of Smith College. 

. 'nging the title role, Henry 
Faieetti of Holyoke, as Mamrlco, 
is appearing for his third succes- 
sive season with AMCOP since 
he first responded to the notice 
about open auditions. Those who 
have been attending rehearsals 
predict that he may outdo even 
his "Pagliacci." 

The part of Azucena, the 
gypsy who adopted Manrico 
when a baby, is sung by Calliope 
Shenas of Springfield, remem- 
bered by AMCOP patrons for 
her "Carmen." This role so ap- 
pealed to Verdi that he nearly 
called the opera "La Gitana" 
("The Gypsy"). The relationship 
between Azucena and her foster

son is all the more poignant 
when one recalls that Verdi 
composed this the year his own 
mother died. 

Leonora, Manrico's sweetheart, 
will be sung by Dorothy Feld- 
man of Amherst, one of 
AMCOP's stanchest supporters 
and hardest workers. A regular 
trouper, a very competent sing- 
er, Mrs. Feldman can always be 
counted on to turn out a profes- 
sional performance. 

Eugene Baker of Springfield, 
our Escamillo in "Carmen" and 
Silvio in "Pagliacci," sings the 
hot-headed Count Di Luna, pur- 
suing the gypsies and battling 
with Manrico for the hand of 
Leonora. 

In charge of stage direction 
this season is Naomi Ornest of 
New York known to AMCOP for 
"Madame Butterfly" and the 
"Marriage of Figaro." Mrs. 
Ornest says she is enjoying 
working out a new concept for 
the production of "II Trovatore," 
using a unit set, similiar to 
Shakespearian theater, in order 
not to hold up the action by cum- 
bersome changes of scenery. 

Peter Kerns. Mayo Smith Fel- 
low in the Admission Office of 
Amherst College, from which he 
graduated last June, is the scene 
and costume designer. Working 
with him are Hal Hatch, Trevor

The chorus is under the ex- 
perienced direction of Richard R. 
Rescia. former president of the 
company and highly skilled mu- 
sical jack-of-all-trades. Singing

The rewards in this type of 
volunteer work are not always 
visible. A student can Not be ex- 
pected to make a person who has 
not spoken in years, utter his 
first words. Nor can he be ex- 
pected to aid greatly in a pa- 
tient's recovery. However, your 
presence adds enjoyment and 
hope to a patient's life. And 
when they say "thank you" or 
"please come again soon," you

something wonderful. After all, 
what could be more wonderful 
than helping a fellow human be-

The orchestra is being or- 
ganized by Prof. Donald O. 
White, assistant professor of 
German at Amherst College, who 
frankly admits that music is his 
hobby. New to AMCOP's produc- 
tion committee, one of his tasks 
has been to procure two anvils 
for the orchestra to use in "The 
Anvil Chorus." He is now con- 
sidered an authority on the 
whereabouts of anvils in Hamp- 
shire and Franklin Counties.

(Continued on page 10) 

THE I'M LINE PLAY was a 

bright spot in the contest for 
Redmen followers. Harvard got 
nowhere trying to run straight 
ahead. The Crimson's biggest 
gains come on the passing of 
Bassett and the halfback sweeps 
around end. But on first and goal 
at the UM one-yard line, Har- 
vard insisted on ramming its 
heads against a brick wall four 
times in a row. 

Sophomores Bernie Dallas and 
Bob Ellis had big days on de- 
fense. Dallas broke through Har- 
vard's line to smear Mike Basset 
for big losses. Ellis put the stop 
on Bill Grana on the fourth down 
of the goal line stand, inter- 
cepted a Bassett pass and made 
a half dozen crisp tackles of 
Crimson runners.

Coast Guardsmen Down

Harriers Trample Coast Guard 
Brouillet Sets Meet Record

NOT EVERYONE WAS AT 
HARVARD Saturday afternoon 
as the UMass booters hosted the 
Midshipmen of the Coast Guard 
Academy, dropping a tough de- 
cision 2-1 before a crowd of 200. 

From the opening kick, the 
first period was lively with both 
teams trying to gain the early 
advantage. UMass inside right 
Buzz Whitman, in and out of the 
game as opportunities for corner 
kicks developed, was unable to 
lend the scoring punch to the 
booters as the first period ended 
scoreless. 

UMass drew first blood at 1:37 
of the second period when a Mid- 
die Fullback used hands to pre- 
vent Pat McDevitt, in alone, 
from scoring. Dick Leete, re- 
sponsible for last week's lone 
score against Army, scored on 
the penalty kick. The booters 
were unable to capitalize on

their advantage due to the fine 
saves of Middie centerhalf Bob 
Walker which broke up several 
UMass scoring attempts. There 
was no serious Coast Gunrd 
threat to the Redmen goal due 
to almost constant pressure on 
the Middie half of the field. 

A REVITALIZED COAST 
GUARD team bounced back in 
the third quarter to punch 
through the tying goal. With less 
than a minute played in the pe- 
riod, Middie inside Gerry McGill 
set up Bill Carr for the score. 
Six minutes later center forward 
Marty Hoppe scored from close 
inside to move the Coast Guard 
ahead 2-1. The Redmen kept the 
pressure on in the last minutes 
of the period as Dick Leete failed 
on a second penalty kick. 

A third penalty shot by Pat 
McDevitt went high. Tom As- 
taldi, driving in, set up Pat Mc- 
Devitt several times, only to

THE UMASS VARSITY 
CROSS-COUNTRY team opened 
their season Saturday afternoon 
against the Coast Guard Aca- 
demy at New London, Conn, 
with an 18-40 triumph, a very 
impressive showing for what is 
practically a new team. With 
only senior Bob "Digger" Brouil- 
let returning from last years 
team, the Redmen took five of 
the first six places. 

"Digger", ran away from the 




field as he covered the 3.9 mile 
course in the record time of 
20:29.5. The old record of 20:38 
was held by Terry Merritt of 
Springfield College. Brouillet, 
headed for another great season 
as one of New England's top run- 
ners, came in over 70 seconds 
ahead of second place finisher 
Bob Ramsey of UMass, who ran 
very well and finished in 21:41. 
Ramsey, a junior, has been run- 
ning very well in practice, and 
after Saturday's performance, 
will be one of the top men on 
this year's squad.

Molvar, who finished 4th in

good part of the race, but suf- 
fered cramps on one of the hills 
and was unable to shake them. 
The other two UMass scorers 
were Gene Colburn, 22:22, and 
Al MacPhail, 22:23. Only five 
seconds separated these last 
three boys. Also placing for 
UMass were Tom Panke, 9th,

CAMBRIDGE. The University 
of Massachusetts, sputtering and 
impatient on the offensive but 
courageous and determined on 
the defensive managed to hold 
off a more impressive Harvard 
University team to a 0-0 draw- 
before a crowd of 16,500 onlook- 
ers at Harvard Stadium Satur- 
day afternoon. 

A brilliant goal line stand 
saved what seemed to be a sure 
Crimson score. In the last period 
it was the clock that saved the 
UMass eleven from what seemed 
to be doom as a last ditch Har- 
vard drive ran out of time on the 
UMass five. 

Harvard was off and running 
the first time it got its hands on 
the ball. After taking Milt 
Morin's game opening kick the 
Crimson began sweeping and 
running the left side of the Red- 
men defenses and reached the 
Massachusetts 24 yard line and a 
first down. Three downs later 
Harvard was still on the 24. A 
fourth down field goal attempt 
from the 30 fell short and wide 
to the right. 

THE REDMEN RAN five sets 
of downs in the first half, most 
of the plays trying the left side 
of the Crimson defenses for lit- 
tle gain. On the fourth down of 
each series UM fullback Paul 
Vandcrsea was called upon to 
punt. The Fusiamen failed to 
pick up a single first down dur- 
ing the whole first half. 

During the second quarter it 
was Harvard that again dom- 
inated the game. Starting on its 
own 24 the Crimson steadily ad- 
vanced downfield to the UM 18 
before halfback Bob Ellis inter- 
cepted a Mike Basset pass in- 
tended for halfback Scott Harsh- 
barger. 

Five plays later Harvard had 
the ball again via a Vandersea 
punt. In six plays the Crimson 
came from its own 40 to the 
UMass one and a first down and 
goal to go situation. For four 
plays the Redmen line took on 
the qualities of a brickwall. 

HALF STAN YASTRZEMSKI 

carried on first down only to be 
met by UM center Charlie

for no gain as the time ran out. 
The Redmen defenders left the 
field to the standing ovation of 
5000 UM rooters. 

In the second half UMass ap- 
peared to have more life in its 
game but still could not put to- 
gether even an appearance of a 
scoring threat. Harvard also 
seemed to have lost some of its 
spark that ignited its offense in 
the first two quarters. 

The deepest penetration into 
Harvard territory by the Red- 
men came in the fourth quarter 
when a drive highlighted by a 
Whelchel to Morin pass, good 
for 23 yards, conked out on the 
Harvard 22. The Redmen had the 
ball on two occasions after this 
but gave it up on a punt and a 
fumble. 

WITH TIME RUNNING OUT 
the Crimson unrolled its second 
big threat of the day, Tom 
Bilodeau took Vandersea's 6th 
punt on the afternoon on his own 
41. Wally Grant scooted around 
right end for a ten yard gain but 
the play was called back on a 
back-in-motion penalty. 

Back on its own 36 Harvard 
took to the air. Quarterback 
Mike Basset hit Dave Poe on the 
Harvard 42 for a 6 yard gain. 
Basset connected with end Tom 
Stephenson who was stopped by 
Whelchel on the UM 32. Guard 
Joe Doyle spilled Basset for a 9 
yard loss and Basset's next two 
passes went astray. On fourth 
and 19 the Crimson quarterback 
found Ken Boyda at the 16 and 
Boyda was stopped by Whelchel 
on the 11. 

ON FIRST DOWN DAVE 
TOE went off tackle to the UM 
5. But the ball was still there 
as the final gun sounded and 
Harvard could not get off an- 
other play. The Crimson had al- 
ready squandered its allotment 
of time outs and could not call 
another to get a field goal kicker 
into the game. 

The UMass offensive was 
rather unimaginative. Jerry 
Whelchel. rated for his passing 
threat, tried only six during the 
contest, three of which found 
their marks. But Whelchel was 
the object of numerous blitzes 
by Crimson ends and tackles be- 
fore he could get set to throw. 
Several times he was nailed for 
big losses on third downs. After 
the game Vic Fusia said that the 
Crimson pass defense was tight- 
er than he had expected that it 
would be, another reason for the 
de-emphasis on passing. 

Poor timing in the backfield 
still plagues UMass. The Redmen 
were penalized five times Satur- 
day, four of them for backfield 
in motion violations. The other 
was a personal foul in the first 
quarter.

The Brown -Noser 



Letters To The Editor 



by MARK CHEREN 

Ah, you remember that oft used high school epithet. 
'Made your blood just about curdle, didn't it. Indeed, was 
not many a worthy question left unasked for fear of the 
sign of the fist-affixed nose? 

But you're right. That was justified. It really did make 
a difference to the all too many aimless veterans and frus- 
trated burlesque-house throwbacks who ended up teaching 
in our war baby high schools. They lacked the insight and 
plain common sense to judge our performance rationally — 
that is, by what we produced relative to our ability. 

Funniest thing, though. Some people still think that the 
term applies, right here in college. Imagine, these people 
are actually paying for an education out of their own par- 
ents' pockets, and yet they habitually hesitate and usually 
desist from asking their professors about things that sin- 
cerely interest but puzzle them because of the aforemen- 
tioned foolish neurosis*. (Symptomatic of this sort of neu- 
rotic is the appearance of goose bumps at the mere sug- 
gestion that a (shudder) "close" student-professor rela- 
tionship might be enjoyable as well as intellectually stim- 
ulating.) 

Even though they realize that the problem of relative 
ability has been largely reduced by university admissions 
requirements; and even though they remember that, in 
their own experience, about nineteen out of twenty profes- 
sors (or their behind the scenes assistants) determine 
marks on a basis of objectively determined grades. (Ad- 
mittedly, the standards aren't always the best, but for the 
most part everyone in the class is judged by the same 
norm) ; and even though they realize how many professors 
\\*Daid--giye _ anything for the bashfully mumbled sounds 
that indicate that someone's listening to them, or for the 
termite soft knocking on their office doors which never 
seem to come during those eternally lonely "office hours". 
Yes, despite, all this they still maintain their cadaverish 
silence. Aren't you glad you're not like them? 

•i.e. based on fear of rejection by the same or opposite sex, depend- 
ing upon the subject's interests. 

Tosca--A Review 

by LOIS SKOLNICK 

With a superb performance of Tosca by the Goldovsky 
Grand Opera Theater, the University Concert Association 
began its 1963-1964 season on Monday night. 

Playing to a well-dressed and entuhsiastic audience of 
about 1800, Mr. Boris Goldovsky directed his company in a 
skillful and dramatic presentation of Puccini's Tosca. 

This highly dramatic Italian opera takes place in Rome, 
relating the drama of the love between a painter and an 
opera singer (Tosca). Tragedy evolves with the arrival of 
an escaped political prisoner, complicated by the jealous 
love of his pursuer, the Chief of Police, for Tosca. The 
story dramatically ends with the death of all four protag- 
onists. 

The presentation is an example of Mr. Goldovsky's 
unique concept of operatic production, "one in which real- 
istic, convincing stage action was happily united with mu- 
sical and vocal excellence." 

Although enunciation could have been clearer, Mr. 
Goldovsky's flowing English verses of Tosca were very skill- 
fully acted and sung by the talented Lucien Oliver, Dean 
Wilder, Josephine Busalacchi and Sherill Milnes in leading 
roles. 

The effective set design was a further result of Mr. 
Goldovsky's particular concepts of operatic production, 
which aim to ensure authenticity of presentation. 

Mr. Goldovsky and company deserve commendation for 
giving a splendid performance in spite of the great physical 
discomforts offered by the makeshift auditorium. 



Two Sick "Heroes" 

To the editor, 

In the process of living at a University such as ours, one en- 
counters vast differences of beliefs, behavior, and mentality. Though 
we must accept many of these differences, some can only be termed 
"sick" or abnormal. 

In the past summer someone from this growing monster called 
a University had the mentality to realize that our concrete. ste?l 
limbs are crushing out all natural beauty. A plan was set forth to 
not only preserve tbp pond area but to add life to it in the form (A 
16 ducks and 4 swans. It is safe to say that many students welcome 
the addition and appreciate the University's efforts. 

Today (Tuesday) students will notice 15 ducks, 4 swans, and 
one ball of feathers with a rock embedded in it. Last night two 
"sick" students did their utmost to destroy these pond residents. 
Their efforts were startling: carrying and throwing as many stone- 
as possible and then running the length of the pond to get more 
stones from the street. Their drive to kill these harmless, helpless 
creatures, and the joy they derived from it was repulsive to all on- 
lookers. Only one, with the mentality of a mad, frustrated, little boy, 
could have taken such delight in these efforts. 

Perhaps they were having some "Hero" delusions — for they 
were shocked at my intrusion. I would like to ask them why? Were 
they out of rocks? Was it getting past their bed time? Or, was it 
because I am bigger than the duck they hit? 

If such people hav^ no respect for nature and helpless living 
creatures perhaps they can respect property rights. These birds are 
the property of our University. DON'T STONE OUR PROPERTY! 

W.R.D. '65 



A Plea For Authenticity 

Despite Boris Goldovsky's excellent overall production 
of Tosca, there was one flagrant shortcoming, namely the 
text. The meager program contained no synopsis of the 
story and not many students had ever heard or seen the 
work performed. Italian opera is meant to be sung in Ital- 
ian and there is only one slight justification to attempt yet 
another "new" English version: that the dramatic action 
be made clear to an American audience. This noble aim was 
not achieved last Monday night, nor does our idiom lend 
itself to reproduce the dramatic coval quality inherent in 
Puccini's great arias. 

What was understandable made the opera seem more 
comic than tragic. "Why must you now withdraw your 
hand?" is highly inadequate as the conclusion of "Vissi 
d'arte" and "Here lies the man who made all Romans 
tremble" cannot convey the awesome fear of "Davanti a lui 
tremava tutta Roma." Cavaradossi's last lament turns to 
parody — always dangerously close in opera — when "E luce- 
van le stelle" is rendered by "I remember the moonlight." 
My wife claims that Tosca's last line as she throws herself 
down from the top of what seemed a particularly unfortun- 
ate replica of Castel Sant'Angelo was: "Mario, my dear, 
with you!" which is both unfair to God and to Tosca's vil- 
lainous victim Scarpia. Only two lines were clearly under- 
standable: "How can I be certain?" and "I can stand it no 
more." Is any additional comment necessary?

The Logician 

To Dick Cass 

Mr. Cass, I happened to notice your criticism of Mr. John Child's 
views, in which you point out faulty procedure in his logic. Since you 
manifest a likmg for logic, I suggest that you investigate the defini- 
tion of the word "inference" before you use it again. Inference is a 
process in logic whereby conclusions are drawn from given premises. 
People infer; fact* imply. The wording of your criticism uses the 
the word "infer" as though it means "to mean" or "imply," which 
it does not. Before you make open statements criticizing other in- 
dividuals' usage of logic. Mr. Cass, I suggest you check your own.

Redeem Thyselves 

There exists on this campus an 
organization. It is a fine organ- 
ization. It is called the Student 
Senate. There is in the Student 
Union an office. It is a big office. 
It is called the Recognized Stu- 
dent Organizations Office, There 
is in the RSO office a table. It 
is not a very big table. But it is 
big enough. There are on this 
table nomination papers. They 
are blank nomination papers. 
There are many of them — TOO 
MANY!! 

Did you ever wonder how 
many complaints are voiced in 
the Collegian and the Senate? 
Did you ever stop and think 
what these complaints mean? 
Are they so numerous because 
we're just miserable or because 
we like to be arbitrary? 

I don't know the answer and 
neither do the Senate or class 
leaders. We don't know because 
many people are satisfied to have 
their say and not do anything 
about it. They complain about 
housing — that seems to be quite 
the thing now — and they com- 
plain about that awful thing 
that invades every year about 
this time that has six letters 
and begins with an "a". 

This week, these people who 
feel so strongly about the exist- 
ing conditions on campus could 
have walked into that big office 
in which is that not very big 
table with too many blank nom- 
ination papers on it, and they 
could have signed for one of 
these papers and gotten twen- 
ty-lve of their fellow complaln- 
ers to support them — then they 
would have had the opportunity 
to remedy some of these condi- 
tions. But the number of com- 
plaints still heavily outweighed 
the number of nomination papers 
returned to the Senate on the 
deadline!! 

It is this type of negative res- 
ponse that creates even more 
dissatisfaction, and we all know 
that things are so horribly-hor- 
rible now that we can't allow 
this to happen. But we still can 
ACT to prevent this from hap- 
pening. Tomorrow — from 6:00 to 
9:00 in the rec-rooms of the 
dorms, we can elect dorm sen- 
ators; and from 8:30 to 5:00 in 
the lobby of the student union, 
we can elect fraternity, soror- 
ity, and commuter senators — who 
care enough to do our complain- 
ing for us and voice our opin- 
ions (negative or affirmative) 
where they will count. 

If we don't stop talking and 
start acting NOW, we may lose 
our privilege to act — WE 
SHOULD KNOW BY NOW 
THAT JI'ST TALKING GETS 
IS NOWHERE.

Former Sig Ep 

New Dean For Fraternities 






by DAN GLASBAND 

With the UMass campus now 
caught up in the furor of rush- 
ing, an introduction to our new 
Fraternity Dean, William Barn- 
ard, and an insight into his poli- 
cies might be appropriate. 

Mr. Barnard was graduated 
from the University in 1958, and 
has since travelled throughout 
the United States as an adver- 
tising promotion manager for a 
national firm. Recently married, 
the Dean devotes much of his 
time to mountain climbing and 
working on his hi-fi set. 

While he was a student at the 
University, Mr. Barnard served 
as President of his pledge class 
and pledge trainer of Sigma Phi 
Epsilon. He also was editor-in 
chief of the Index. 



Although Dean Barnard's posi- 
tion is administrative, he plans 
to lend active advisory support 
to both fraternities and the indi- 
vidual members, in order to 
bring the houses closer together 
and adjust their aims so that 
they can act unitedly for the 
good of the fraternity system and 
in a manner consistent with the 
educational aims of the Universi- 
ty. 

With the University planning 
to expand to 20,000 students 
within the next ten years, the 
life or death of the fraternity 
system depends on a concurrent 
growth with the University. 
Dean Barnard expressed the de- 
sire to see the fraternities ac- 
complish this expansion in a 
"healthy fashion." To realize this

goal, he plans to follow the hous- 
es in day to day activity, and to 
offer guidance to them and to 
act as consultant on rushing, 
pledge training, and in any ad- 
visory capacity where he can be 
of assistance, 

Mr. Barnard shows a positive 
attitude toward the fraternities, 
and wishes to be of assistance 
without taking direct adminis- 
trative charge. Although the 
houses are subject to University 
regulations, they are individually 
responsible for their affairs and 
are jointly responsible to the In-

University Psychiatrist 
Describes College Life 



by PAT LONG 

"A competitive, demanding life, 
conducive to stress" — this was 
how Dr. Julian Janowitz, Direc- 
tor of Mental Hygiene at the 
University, summed up campus 
life in a recent interview. Pre- 
venting the problems that can 
arise in such an atmosphere is, 
Dr. Janowitz feels, the principal 
task that he and his colleagues 
at the Infirmary face. 

This most important "team" 
consists of Dr. Janowitz himself 
and two staff psychologists, Dr. 
Havens and Dr. Allen, who share 
among them the heavy load of 
students who come seeking help 
or advice. "In an average week, 
we see about 60 students for in- 
terviews, although the number 
may vary anywhere from 40 to 
(near examination time) 120 

students." 



UM Dame's Club 
Stresses Service 



by IRIS ANN DECELLES 

There exists at UMass a dedi- 
cated, self-supported organiza- 
tion of females known as the 
'Dames'. These females are no 
ordinary gals; they are the drive 
behind every UMass husband. 
They are the wives ! 

Who can be a 'Dame'? Accord- 
ing to the National Constitution 
ratified in 1933 and adopted by 
the UMass Chapter in 1954, "any 
wife of an undergraduate or 
graduate student or any wife 
who is herself a student can be- 
come a 'Dame'." 

The Dames' are not just a 
group of girls who get together 
to swap receipts or discuss chil- 
dren. Although they do enjoy 
themselves at their monthly 
meeting every third Thursday of 
the month, 'Dames' special rea- 
son for organizing is never for- 
gotten — that is, the promotion of 

friendship and fidelity among 

families where one or both mem- 
bers is trying to further his ed- 
ucation at the University. The 
symbol of the 'Dames', a wed- 
ding ring pierced by an arrow, 
expresses this goal adequately. 



Some of the traditional activ- 
ities of Dames Club are giving a 
scholarship to a married student, 
sponsoring a dinner dance for all 
'Dames' and their husbands, 
planning a family picnic, and 
giving the children a Christmas 
party. The money to support 
these events is earned by having 
cake sales, rummage sales, or 
bazaars. 

The UMass Chapter of Dames 
Club, a recognized member of 
the RSO since 1956, cordially 
invites all married student wives 
and female married students to 
join its organization and become 
an active 'Dame'. President Glo- 
ria Blodgett or Vice-President 
Trudy Brown, who can be 
reached at AL 3-5631 or AL 
3-7779 respectively, would be 
pleased to tell you more about 
'Dames'. 

One last word about Dames'. 
While the male partner is re- 
ceiving his Bachelor or Doctor- 
ate degree at Graduation in June, 
'His Dame' will receive her 
PHT— Putting Hubby Through. 
Don't you wish you could be- 
come a 'Dame'?

More than two-thirds of the 
personal problems brought to the 
suite of offices on the second 
floor of the Infirmary are 
cleared up in less than five in- 
terviews. Dr. Janowijz finds that 
the large majority of these prob- 
lems are, in some form or an- 
other, "those of transition from 
adolescence to young adulthood. 
Students find themselves in situ- 
ations in which they are forced 
to readjust their values, and the 
process can be a difficult one." 

These difficulties are not nec- 
essarily an effect of the pres- 
sures of campus life, but often 
the atmosphere of stress and 
constant challenge can aggra- 
vate them. Dr. Janowitz feels 
that an important part of his job 
lies in the field of "preventive 
mental health." Thus, in an ef- 
fort to create a social climate 
conducive to good mental health, 
and to develop a proper attitude 
towards this problem on the part 
of the University community, the 
staff spends a great deal of time 
talking to dorms, to counselors- 
in-training, to the school's Deans. 

Dr. Janowitz emphasized that 
their job is shared by others on 
campus. "Often our functions as 
sympathetic listeners and advis- 
ors overlap with those of the 
Counseling and Guidance Servic- 
es and the chaplains." 

The image that many college 
students have of psychiatrists is 
dominated, he feels, by stereo- 
types and cliches about "head- 
shrinkers" and "big black couch- 
es." Much of the work of the

The Folk 
Scene

This area abounds with people 
who have worked or are working 
on a professional basis within the 
"folk idiom." This week's column 
will survey some of these people. 
On our own campus, we have 
Gill Woods who lives in Granby, 
Mass. Gill was a member of the 
"Tikis," a commercially orientat- 
ed folk quartet. Gill plays guitar 
and has been singing as a single 
in the Western Mass. area this 
summer. 

Brooks House is the abode of 
Anne Baxter, a member of the 
class of '65. Ann sings ballads 
and worked this summer in Prov- 
incetown on Cape Cod. 

This summer, UMass welcomed 
Dick Doherty, who transfered 
here from Northeastern. Dick 
sang with the Rovers 3 who re- 
corded on the Columbia label. 
Dick is currently forming a trio 
here on campus, tentatively 
called the Bondsmen. They'll be 
making their debut on campus in 
the near future. 

The town of Amherst is for- 
tunate to have George Weir as

Placement Convocation Change 



The following changes in the 
schedule of Placement Convoca- 
tions have been made: 

(1) A Special Convocation for 
boh men and women w'll be 
held in the Student Union Ball- 
room Thursday, October 3, at 
11:15 a.m. The purpose of this 
special convocaiton is to ac- 
quaint Seniors with opportuni- 
ties for graduate studies both 
scholastically and financially. 
Dr. Edward C. Moore, dean of 
the graduate school, will s^*eak 
about prerequisites and en- 
trance, methods of applying, 
types of fellowships available, 
overseas appointments and the 
like. There will be an opportu- 
nity for questions. 

Because of the increasing 
competition for the limited 
number of places in graduate 
schools, it is of the utmost im- 
portance for seniors to formu- 
late plans as early as possible. 
Whether genuinely or merely 
tentatively considering gradu- 
ate study following graduation, 
this convocation will be most 
helpful. 

(2> The second and third over- 
all Senior Convocations for 
women (previously scheduled 
October 3 and November 21 » 
will be combined and held on 
Thursday, October 10, in the 
Student Union Ballroom. At this 
meeting the following matters 



will be discussed: job opportuni- 
ties for women, recruiting pro- 
cedure, interviewing techniques 
and job hunting procedures. 

(3) The Special Convocation 
for Education majors will be 
held at 11:15 a.m. Thursday. No- 
vember 21, in the Student Union 



Ballroom. This meeting will be 
held to discuss certain aspects 
of occupational planning pertin- 
ent to the teaching profession. 
Again Seniors are urged to 
complete their registration and 
make an anointment for their 
individual interview.

Last oi A Series: The Peace Corps 



A , _ . . The 'Flying Redmen' 
Improved Selection And Traunng ^ 



(Editor's Note: This is the last 
of a three part series on the 
Peace Corps.) 

WASHINGTON, D.C. (CPS)— 
The Peace Corps is attempting 
to learn more about its effective 
Volunteers— and how to And 
them. 

"It's. frustrating to know that 
a given project has been a 
smashing success — and yet not 
know why, or how, it can be 
duplicated elsewhere," Mr. Jo- 
seph G. Colmen, head of Peace 
Corps Research, said in an inter- 
view with CPS. 

"Yet how can we tell — in ad- 
vance — who will be an inspired 
Volunteer and how a project can 
be made successful?" 

Colmen and his staff have 
launched a four-part research 
program to provide answers to 
these questions, and are building 
it around extensive interviews 
and "de-briefings" with return- 
ing Volunteers. 

The first area of research, 
according to Colmen, is an at- 
tempts to identify and measure 
the success of overseas Volun- 
teers. 

'To a very real extent, we are 
not sure what makes success in 
an overseas program, : Dr. Gil- 
man said. "For example, a speci- 
fic building project may be des- 
troyed by floods — yet the Volun- 
teers involved may have left be- 
hind an example of determina- 
tion more valuable than the 
would-be project." 

Colmen' s staff is using psy- 



chological techniques to identify, 
where possible, changes in the 
mental attitudes of people in- 
volved in Peace Corps projects. 

A second area of research 
deals with changes and adjust- 
ments in the personalities of the 
Peace Corps Volunteers them- 
selves as they serve overseas. 

"In this connection, we've 
asked returning Volunteers if 
they experienced low points' 
during their tours of duty," he 
said. About 95 percent admitted 
to having one or more serious 
problems which they had to cope 
with as part of their project. 
And, we find, almost all of them 
succeeded. 

"We found that perhaps the 
most valuable part of the Peace 
Corps experience for most of 
these Volunteers was the ability 
to be on their own, responsible 
for discharging a high level of 
responsibility on their own ini- 
tiative." 

A third area of research, he 
said, centers around the effect of 
a Peace Corps project in a given 
country. 

"We want to study how the 
school system in a given country, 
for example, changes when a 
third to a half of its teachers 
are Peace Corps Volunteers," he 
said. "Do the other teachers 
show a change in attitudes? Are 
the students more eager to 
learn? Do side effects travel up 
and down the educational scale 
from the levels where Volunteers 
are teaching?" 

This project has required a 



good deal of factual data on 
grades and student testing, Dr. 
Colmen said, and will probably 
prove to be very interesting 
when completed. 

The last area of current Peace 
Corps research involved the 
Corps own operations — its staff 
structure, methods of training 
and supporting Volunteers, 
teaching languages and so forth. 

"Long range research of this 
sort, : Dr. Colmen said, "is aimed 
at providing studies which the 
Corps can use in improving its 
future operations. 

"We know, now, that Peace 
Corps service involves a good 
measure of loneliness, heat, 
routine, solitude, and boredum. 
We know the stereotypes of 
Volunteers marching into the 
setting sun are not accurate. 

"But the Corps has grown so 
rapidly, and with such enthu- 
siasm, that often we have not 
been sure why certain methods 
are successful. If we can dis- 
cover the reasons, we should be 
able to increase the level of 

success." 




The AFROTC Flying Redmen. 
perennial New England area 
drill champions, have positions 
available for all interested 
AFROTC basic cadets. Last 
year's team, under the leadership 

of Cadet Lieutenant Colonel 
Peter Cabana, placed high in the 
National competition at Wash- 
ington. D.C. Out of more than 



90 teams competing the 'Flying 
Redmen' managed to place nine^ 
teenth. 

This year's 'Flying Redmen 
commander is looking forward 
to another big year. Those cadets 
interested in joining UMass' only 
drill team should report to the 
drill team practice on Tuesday 
and Thursday at 11:15 a.m. be- 
hind Dickenson Hall. 



University Announces Summer Session Plans 



The University's 1964 Summer 
Session will consist of two six- 
week main sessions, it was an- 
nounced today by Dr. William 
C. Venman, Director of the Sum- 
mer Session. 

The first session will begin on 
June 15, one week after Com- 



THE TRIANGLE OFFICE OF 

THE FIRST NATIONAL BANK 

OF AMHERST 

located at 

243 Triangle Street, Amherst 

provides a drive-up window, free parking and all 
Commercial Bank Services with the exception of 
Trust and Safe Deposit. 

A cordial invitation is extended to all University 
Students, Faculty and Personnel to use its facilities.

Member F.D.LC. 



The second will open on July 27 
mencement. and close on July 25. 
and close on Friday before Labor 
Day, September 4. 

In a move aimed at providing 
greater educational opportunities 
for both undergraduate and 
graduate students, the change 
lengthens by two weeks the pre- 
vious ten-week period considered 
by both faculty and students to 
be too rushed. 

If a student enrolls in both 
terms, he can come within three 
credit hours of taking a full 
semester's work. The normal 
load for a student will be six 
credit hours per term, with stu- 
dents who desire to do so being 
permitted to take required 
physical education in addition. 
Students with good scholastic 
records will be allowed take an 
extra course. 



While there are many ways of 
accomplishing the goal of early 
graduation from the University, 
summer attendance is one of the 
most widely used. 

More than 2,500 students are 
expected to attend the 1964 sum- 
mer sessions. 

Once again there will be spe- 
cial courses in engineering, home 
economics, forestry and nursing. 
A special "study abroad" course 
is being planned by the depart- 
ment of English. 

With "year-round operation" 
on everybody's minds, this move 
will penr.it almost all of the ad- 
vantages to the student of such 
a plan, retaining the present 
characteristics of the two regu- 
lar semesters. 

"The announcement is being 
made at this early date to per- 
mit students to make their plans, 
carefully." said Dr. Venman. 



Fall Planting Program 
Beautifies University 



by Olch Pauluk 

An extensive fall planting pro- 
gram, designed to beautify the 
campus, is currently in progress 
at *hc University. 

Iii the past 2 weeks many stu- 
dents have undoubtedly noticed 
large pits being dug in various 
areas of the campus. Fortunate- 
ly, the purpose of these pits is 
not to install more road signs. 
Rather, the pits are there to ac- 
commodate nearly $2,000 worth 
of young trees recommended by 
the Department of Landscape 
Architecture. 

There is no question of need 
for the new trees. Dutch Kim 
disease combined with construc- 
tion work has greatly reduced 
the number of trees on campus. 
Kven many healthy trees will 
have to be cut down in the fut- 
ure to make way for new dor- 
mitories and departmental build- 
ings. 

The planting program is under 
the direction of Kenneth BilW 
ings, Grounds Supervisor, and 
his two assistants, Walter Feld- 
man and Alan Cameron. 

Grounds employees have re- 
cently finished planting young 
Ellis Drive. Young oaks are now 



hemlocks on the President's resi- 
dence and Locust trees along 
being planted on both sides of 
North Pleasant Street. 

Altogether, some 14 different 
varieties of trees will be planted. 
The reason for this great variety 
of different trees is to prevent 
total destruction of any one spe- 
cies in case of disease. 

"I hope students will appre- 
ciate the newly planted trees." 
Mr. Billings said, "and not mere- 
ly regard them as objects on 
which to affix campaign pos- 
ters." "Campus bcautification 
should be a concern of every- 
one," he added. 

With so much of the campus

Redmen Wrestling Team Has 
High Hopes For Next Season 



Cross Country Men 
To Run In Tri Meet 



by HELEN FORSBERG '6ft 

Here's your female-type sports 
reporter back with a round-up 
of this year's wrestling team 
hopes. Wrestling is one sport 
which I knew quite a bit about 
before writing this article but I 
discovered it's not quite the same 
as competitive college wrestling. 
However, with a few modifica- 
tions I think I can understand 
the sport. 

This year's team is shaping up 
to be one of the best wrestling 
teams UMass has had in many 
years. After a much improved 
season last year the varsity is 
returning intact with a loss of 
only one senior. Coming up from 
the freshman team are Jesse 
Brogan, in the 147 weight class, 
and Dave Kelly in the 177 who 
placed first and third respective- 
ly in the Freshman New England

Wrestling Tournament last sea- 
son. 

The team also has high hopes for 
Boris Chevone in the 123 who 
placed third for the varsity in 
the N.E. Tourney. 

The only senior is Captain 
Craig DeWallace, who feels quite 
enthusiastic about the coming 
season. 

The team has already started 
practicing and will have until 
early December to get into top 
shape. The first match is with 
Worcester Polytechnical Insti- 
tute and should prove to be 
quite exciting as UMass lost in 
a squeaker to W.P.I, last year. 
The squad has also received an 
invitation to wrestle in the 
Coast Guard Invitational Tourna- 
ment over Christmas vacation. 

Fraternity Football 

T.K.E. and K.S. showed high 
scoring offenses and rugged de- 
fenses as they shut-out oppon- 
ents in their first week of play. 

T.K.E. in winning 28-0 over 
Z.N. scored 21 points in the sec- 
ond half of their game. The sec- 
end half saw the size and speed 
of this team jell to overpower a 
good Z.N. team. 

Monday night found Q.T.V. 
shading A.E.P. 19-13, T.C. 
smashed P.M.D. 25-0, B.K.P. out- 
scored A.S.P. 32-13, and PSD. 
downed A.T.G. 14-6. 

The dormitory and independ- 
ent leagues swing into action 
this week on Tuesday and Thurs- 
day night. 



Contributing greatly to the 
team's spirit will be the wres- 
tling room in the new Men s 
Physical Education building. As 
of now the squad is practicing 
in the Cage, but hopes to be 
moving into the new building as 
soon as possible. The main ad- 
vantages of this room are tem- 
perature control which is neces- 
sary for the wrestlers to keep 
their correct weight and also 
complete privacy from the rest 
of the building. This is also very 
important because of the high 
degree of concentration which is 
called for in wrestling. 

COLLEGIAN SPORTS 

Any student who would like to 
work for the Collegian Sports 
Staff in any capacity should 
come to the Collegian Office on 
Sunday, Tuesday, or Thursday 
night between 7 and 10. 



The varsity cross country team 
will take to the road again this 
week as it travels to Boston on 
Saturday for the tri-meet with 
Northeastern and Maine. This 
meet is shaping up to be one of 
the toughest of the season for 
the Redmen, and one of the top 
cross country meets of the year. 

Maine always fields a strong 
team, and this year figures to be 
no exception. This will be the 
first meet for the Bears so not 
much is known about them. They 
lost several top runners through 
graduation, but some of last 
year's freshmen are expected to 
fill in. 

Prior to this year Northeast- 
ern had never been very strong, 
but this years team is shaping up 
to be one of the best in New 
England. Saturday will tell just 



how good the Huskies are. Paced 
by Dave Donsky, N.E. has shown 
considerable strength in iff 
meets so far this year. 

The Redmen's biggest worry 
Saturday will be to close the 
gaps between its top five run- 
ners, particularly between the 
second and fifth man. The team 
has a spread of almost 50 sec- 
onds in this area, and it will have 
to lessen this distance if they are 
to win on Saturday. 

Saturday will, also give cap- 
tain Bob Brouillet his first crack 
at Dunsky, who is considered 
one of the better runners in New 
England. "Digger" has been run- 
ning even better then he did last 
year, as indicated by his record- 
breaking performance at Coast 
Guard. Saturday could well see 
him produce his second record in 
as many weeks.

by JOHN GOODRICH 

Last Saturday while the Red- 
men were doing battle with 
Crimson on the gridiron, two 
members of the coaching staff 
were some hundred miles away. 
Coach Chet Gladchuck was ob- 
serving the Bisons of Bucknell 
play Dartmouth and Coach Fred 
Glatz was sitting in the Yale 
Bowl watching the UConns take 
en the Elis. These two congenial 
gentlemen handle the scouting 
duties for the 1963 Redmen. 

If the average football fan 
were asked what the duties of 
the scout were, his answer would 
vaguely mention patterns and 
individual performances, that 
were observed during the game. 
Actually there is much more to 
the job of scouting then what oc- 
curs on the day of the game. The 
work begins sometime earlier In 
the week when the scouts 
examine the films of the op- 
ponent they will be seeing. These 
films are broken down so that 
formations the team has used 
previously can be studied. While 
this would seem to give the scout 
an advantage, Coach Glatz noted, 
"You can never be sure what 
you will see, for instance, UConn 
came out with an entirely new 
offensive formation last Satur- 
day. The scout has to note the 
plays that occur off a formation

and note them for later use." 

According to Coach Glad- 
chuck, "The ideal scout can see 
the offense, the defense, and the 
individuals at the same time. 
This, of course, is impossible." 
Some of the things a scout tries 
to notice during the course of the 
game besides the all important 
offensive and defensive align- 
ments are who the best runner 
is, favorite receiver for the 
passer, favorite plays the QB 
calls in a given situation, and 
any changes the team makes in 
its alignments to adjust to the 
opponent during the game. As 
can be seen, scouting is a job 
that requires alertness on every 
play. Coach Gladchuck then pro- 
ceeded to outline some of these 
things he noted while scouting 
Bucknell, with regard to the in- 
dividuals in the Bisons' lineup. 
After this brief explanation, he 
outlined a few more things that 
the scout has to look for. Among 
others, he noted, there were 
basic movements, does the QB 
run or not, new offensive plays 
that have been added, and gen- 
erally expecting anything. 

Rule Changes . . . 

(Continued from page 8) 

time outs in order to make sub- 
stitutions. Thus teams will be 
substituting after an incompleted 
pass or a running play that goes 
out of bounds. 

Probably the result of all this 
is something best called "un- 
limited limited substitutions". 
This new rule makes room for 
the individual specialist, who 
olherwise might never see ac- 
tion, rather than a special team. 

However, rule changes involve 
the techniques of football, not 



After the completion of the 
Saturday afternoon chores, the 
scout returns to the University to 
examine his notes. Coach Glatz 
explains, "Now is the time when 
the scout must dicipher the notes 
taken in haste during the game 
and transfer them into some- 
thing useful that the team can 
use." For this purpose, the 
scouts use a large card, on the 
bottom of which the particular 
offensive formation is drawn, 
and above this the plays that are 
run from this formation are 
shown. Coach Glatz oblerved, 
"Usually you will only get to see 
a particular formation once or 
twice a game because the team 
may only run one play off that 
formation." By this time the im- 
formation is ready to be given 
to the team, and while the team 

studies the notes, the scouts art 
preparing for next week's as- 
signment. When the Redmen 
take the field Saturday, do not 
be surprised to see two of the 
coaches, namely Gladchuck and 
Glatz, are among the missing. 
They are merely carrying out 
their job on a different gridiron. 



the fundamentals. The funda- 
mentals remain the same as in 
the "iron man" days of football 
when it was a matter of pride to 
finish a game with the same 
eleven men who, started it. The 
basic requirements still remain: 
"vigorous bodily contact, a cour- 
ageous heart, the ability to fit 
individual daring into a team 
framework, and the discipline 
that comes from playing to win 
but being able to accept defeat 
like a gentleman". 

The superficial of this very 
basic game of football may 
change but not the game itself.

THE MASSACHrSETTS COLLEGIAN. WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 2. 1968 




Freshmen Football's Main Aim 
Is To Develop Varsity Men 



FRESHMAN COACH FRED GLATZ who directs the efforts of 
the Little Redmen football team. He also is an assistant roach 
for the varsity team. 

New Substitution Rules Will 
Seriously Affect Football Style 



by BOB HEALY 

One of the beauties of college 
football has been that, like the 
English language, the stock 
market, or a girl's mind, it is 
subject to constant change. 

For the past two Saturdays, 
coaches, players, and especially 
spectators have been confused by 
the radical revision of the sub- 
stitution rule made last January. 
Due to this change there have 
been several delays of the game 
penalties called and unwanted 
time outs forced on college teams 
due to improper substitutions. 
These penalties result from the 
effort of the coaches to come to 
terms with the new substitution 
rule and deploy their manpower 
for maximum efTect. 

Briefly, the new rule is this: 
either team can substitute freely 
on second or third down or on 
first down earned on a drive if, 
in all cases the game clock is 
stopped. No more than two play- 
ers can enter the game for a 



fourth down play or one on 
which the ball has just changed 
hands. 

The big change in the rule is 
on the fourth down or on a play 
on which the ball changes hands. 
This means there is a risk of be- 
ing compelled to take the of- 
fensive with a defensive team 
and vice versa. 

Thus the death knell is 
sounded for the three platoon 
system consisting of a first or 
two-way team, and two others, 
one defensive, one offensive. This 
system had just reached its peak 
of popularity last year and now 
is obsolete. 

The restrictions of the new 
rule simply mean that players 
will now need the ability to "go 
both ways". There will be plenty 
of substitutions but under con- 
trolled conditions. For one thing 
that phrase, "if the clock is 
stopped", is all important. Teams 
do not like to relinquish precious

Like Freshman academic sub- 
jects, freshman football is a 
proving ground, a place to learn 
the fundamentals. 

Freshman football coach Fred 
Glatz, believes that his first re- 
sponsibility is to develop his 
charges into good varsity ball 
players, even at the cost of los- 
ing some of his games. 

Following this basic philosophy 
has proved successful for the 
Redmen organization as a look 
at the Sophs on this year's var- 
sity team will show. Bob Meers, 
Bob Ellis, Milt Morin, are all 
talented Sophs who have made 
the step up from Frosh to var- 
sity, and that is a very difficult 
step to make. 

Because Coach Glatz feels that 
a Freshman's first worry should 
be marks, there are only three 
practice sessions a week and 
these are only an hour and forty- 
five minutes long. During this 
time, the basic fundamentals of 
hard-nosed football, blocking, 
tackling, running and other 



skills, are developed to a higher 
degree than the players have 
learned in high school. Only a 
handful of plays are taught at 
this time. 

Later on, if a player makes the 
transition to the varsity, he will 
spend a great amount of his time 
at first in learning new plays. 

It is very difficult for a Soph 
to break into the varsity for 
these reasons. That is why the 
performances of some at this 
year's Sophs are all the more 
impressive. Bob Ellis and Bob 
Meers are some of those players 
who have developed rapidly into 
varsity caliber men. Brooks and 
Morin are two others who 
should improve greatly during 
this season and see quite a bit 
of action. 

Because it is still so early in 
the season, no definite state- 
ments can be made about this 
year's team. Coach Glatz mainly 
hopes to develop more players of 



varsity caliber. The Redmen 
have placed their emphasis dur- 
ing recruiting this year on get- 
ting big, strong backs, especially 
fullbacks. The coaches feel that 
because of the increased em- 
phasis on passing, bigger back- 
field men will be an important 
asset, especially on defense. 

Backs can also to taught to 
play other positions more easily 
than linemen. Most of the inter- 
ior line positions are wide open 
with no definite starters as- 
signed as yet. 

Manlius, the team's first game 
on October 12, could also be 
their first defeat. Manlius has 
the natural advantage of its 
players having worked together 
for at least two years, and they 
are out to avenge last year's 
loss. 

It is the team's only home 
game this year and for those 
students who cannot make the 
varsity game at UConn, it would 
make interesting watching.

Dean Curtis, Mr. Burkhardt, 
and Dr. Southworth are pleased 
tc be able to invite the freshmen 
to join a group that will discuss 
college fits and college goals. 

The small groups are designed 
to stimulate students to search 
out their personal, educational, 
and vocational goals in a very 
active fashion. It is hoped that 
freshmen will leave their semi- 
nar experiences with deepened 
appreciation for the intellectual 
opportunities at the University. 

Each group will be coeduca-

ten freshmen, and will be led by 
an upperclassman. They will 
meet in one of the dormitories. 
There will be no tests, no cred-

presented here on October 9, 
1963, Wednesday at the Student 
Union Ballroom under the au-

Howard Taubman writing in 
the N.Y. Times termed it an

"captures the humanity, wonder 
and humor of Pirandello's best-

"Pirandello's 'Six Characters

it is hard to keep in mind that 
the production is a revival of a

THE M ASS ACIH SETTS COLLEGIAN, FRIDAY. OCTOBER 4, I08S 




Of Acid And Art 

by JAMES CORTESE 

The splendid turnout for Boris Goldov- 
skys "Tosca" last Monday night is a perfect 
example that culture among the student gen- 
eration of today is not, as some would have 
us believe, atrophying, but, on the contrary,

Travels In Collegian 
Montaigne 

by JOHN B. CHILDS 

It came to pass that after several months 
of hardship in the great red-tape waste of 
the Eastern Graftridden Desert we traveled 
up a broad river, and disembarking at a 
certain point purchased the services of sev- 
eral native guides. 

On the third day of our travels we en- 
tered a wooded hilly area which our guides 
informed us was known in a local dialect as 
Universityofmass. We recognized the name 
as being part of the great Metawampian 
language stock but could not postulate any 
further concerning its meaning. 

This Universityofmass is an area of small 
rolling hills which rise on one side of a flat 
plains region. Vegetation is lush and wild- 
life abounds. We could hear calls of wild bi- 
son and boars from the western grasslands 
off in the distance. 

. .The social system is a complicated one but 
revolves around a strong central government 
which controls the numerous tribes of wild 
hillmen who inhabit the hills and higher 
plains areas. From its central location on 
the plain the government deploys great 
armies of blue armored cavalry, tax-collec- 
tors, governors, and other disfunctionaries. 

The people of the hills, though under this 
strong plains control, still take part in raid- 
ing from time to time which is called in Met- 
awampean, rye-arting. These raids strangely 
enough are not directed against the central 
government but is between the hill-men 



BEWARE! 
THE FASCIST MENACE 

by DON ALIFERIS 

There are evidently some people who are 
blinded by the "hate Communists because 
they are against us" propaganda as revealed 
by the article, "Beware! The Communist 
Menace". The author of that article falls in- 
to one of two groups ; those who are totally 
ignorant of political reality, and make state- 
ments as fallacious as "under capitalism it 
is the states' function to serve the individu- 
al" or those of a second group, the neo-fas- 
cists. 

Those who believe that because in theory 
Communism is antithetic to capitalism the 
world cannot and never will live in peace fail

ting for high tragedy, Puccini's sublimely 
beautiful music ultimately prevailed. We are 
inclined to think that the standing ovation 
at the finale was not so much a tribute to 
the performance as it was to the music itself. 
In these times when beauty Is conceived 
as an electric twang accompanied by an echo 
chamber, when art is a dappled canvas in 
the vague corner of the mind, when exper- 
ience is sex, the enthusiastic appreciation of 
something that is true art and true beauty 
by such a following as was present at "Tos- 
ca", negates any thought that culture is 
dying. 



themselves. These raids, we were told, re- 
mind the people of more independent days 
under certain legendary leaders who they 
called Mazagie King Philip and Cosa Nostra. 

It was noced among us that certain of 
the hill-men did not participate in raiding 
but were always the subject of it. It was 
further noted that these particular hill-men 
were women. It was thought amongst us 
that some reason for this dichotomy of raid- 
ing existed but as of yet we have not come 
to understand it. 

These raids or rye-arts into the hills and 
lowlands usually take place over certain well 
traveled mountain passes and by-ways and 
usually occur at night. We suspected a re- 
ligious significance here and upon asking 
were informed that indeed there was a fam- 
ous oracle located in a huge red stone fort- 
ress, deep in the hills where the hill-men 
went with their troubles which in Meta- 
wampean are called "Xu-rozeees" and some- 
times "zy-ko-zees," though the former name 
was less used. 

The blue-armored troops of the central 
government upon learning of the raids us- 
ually quell them with great dispatch. Peace 
falls once again upon the area of turmoil 
and mayhem. 

We bade farewell to our guides and 
struck out south to visit another people the

to us but we were aided by a popular myth

to grasp the portents of history and the real- 
ities of today's world. To say that there is 
only one possible road to peace, the existence 
of one ideology, is to deny the fact that there 
has always been and always will be more 
than one ideology as long as there is more 
than one person. 

Furthermore to say that capitalism and 
communism can never be reconciled is not 
only to abandon humanity to nuclear suicide 
but also to deny the existence of interna- 
tional politics and pressures. Both the United 
States and the Soviet Union are subject. £o 
these pressures for peace; both* have eco- 
nomic considerations and foreign involve- 
ment which prohibits overt conflict an ct last- 
ly both are forced to realize that war would 
eliminate their own society as well as that 
of the other. 

There is a road to peace and it is not one 
of mutual extinction. The two ideologies 
despite the aggressiveness of each can and 
will find this road. They will find it with the 
old aid of Cooperation, negotiation, and com- 
promise. 



STUDENT RESPONSE 

Re: Letter to the editor from John Medeiros 
Dear Mr. Medeiros, 

Genuine optimism and faith in man are often labeled 
naivete. The fact that the United States and the Soviet 
Union seem to have "mutually exclusive" ideologies does 
not make it impossible for them to realize that they are ap- 
proaching the same goal — betterment of man's life on earth 
(not world peace, though that also may ensue) — from dif- 
ferent directions. 

This realization, if and when it does occur, will per- 
haps make possible a mutual toleration if not outright 
friendship between the two nations. This hope may seem 
unattainable to the skeptics who see the future as an eter- 
nal struggle between communism and capitalism, only to 
be terminated in the destruction of one belief by the other 
or the total devastation of the world by an atom bomb. 

The belief that these two ideologies are basically alike 
in their goals is founded on the fact that all men are alike 
in wishing the best in life for themselves and their loved 
ones. If Americans and Russians would strive for an under- 
standing of each other, maybe the useless slaughter which 
took place during the World Wars would have been for a 
good reason — that humanity could learn from its mistakes 
and begin to work positively toward a new goal of peace 
through understanding. Sandra Burlingame 

Hampshire House 

Dear Sir: 

In reference to the letter carried in your column on 
September 30, 1963, we, the men of the second floor of 
Hampshire House, offer the following rebuttle: 

Our relationship with the families on the first and 
third floors has been above reproach. Friendliness and co- 
operation has been expressed by them, in order to help us 
bridge the difficult situation. This we appreciate. 

Concerning the children, we realize that problems will 
arise, but we also realize that someday most of us will have 
children of our own, and we are, therefore, willing to put 
up with the situation. 

We are predominantly transfer students and, with one 
exception, we are grateful to the University for the accom- 
modations afforded us. This housing, we realize, is saving 
us great personal difficulty and monetary expense. 

Concerning public health, it is true that the drainage 
in the men's room is poor, but we appreciate the coopera- 
tion that we receive from our janitor in alleviating this 
problem. 

Sincerely, 
The Men of Hampshire 
(Ed. Note: There were 27 signatures of Hampshire House residents 
affixed to this letter, but lack of space preve>ited us from printing 
themj 

Cadets 

Dear Sirs: 

It would give me great pleasure if you gentlemen, and 
ladies, would use the correct terminology when referring 
to those that are undergraduates of the Coast Guard Acad- 
emy. They are not midshipmen, a term reserved for stu- 
dents of the Naval Academy, as any good dictionary (Web- 
ster's New Collegiate Dictionary, sixth (6th) edition), when 
referred to will tell you. On the contrary, the young under- 
graduates are referred to as cadets. Also, their uniforms 
are blue, not black, as stated in one of your articles (I be- 
lieve it to be the one written by the girl). 

Thank you for your kind attention. Any further refer- 
ence to the Coast Guard in correct terms the next time will 
be a pleasant change. I hope that the University paper is 
not always so careless as to informing, or rather, misin- 
forming the public. 

Sincerely yours, 
Meredith A. Houston, '67 

Me, Madness, Humor

"What Price Glory?" 

I sit here this evening anxiously awaiting the results of my 
quest for glory As a very few of my readers may know, I have been 
seeking the position of commuter senator for the last week or so. 
To what heights I aspire for glory! 

Perhaps there are some who aren't aware of the glory that ac- 
crues to a senator. One is looked up to by the masses. One is allowed 
to debate over nickels, dollars, even thousands of dollars. One can 
attend Senate meetings, committee meetings and sub-committee 
meetings; at least three nights a week. And everyone knows that 
employers are Interested whether or not one is a senator. 

Hence there is much glory. I have just learned that 101 of my 
fellow commuters sought to place me on the glorious pedestal But 
f^»But there were more commuters who found me out, darn It, and so 
about six other guys get all the glory. But you can't win 'em all. 
Ill just continue to bat out this column, and rake in the glory from 
same. At least until the editor finds me out, and replace! me with 
a more properly motivated person.

also study admission systems, 
student personnel and guidance

university-town relations, and 
various aspects of university ad-

Coming to the Amherst area 
are Kazuo Kato, President of

Japan University Accreditation

President of Chiba University; 
Tokutaro Koike, dean of the de- 
partment of economics at Keio

dean of liberal arts and science 
at Kyushu University. 

Japanese-University of Massa- 
chusetts friendship goes back to 
1876 when William S. Clark, the 
third president of UMass, went 
to Japan to help establish what 
is now the University of Hok- 
kaido, and became its first presi- 
dent. Several UMass graduates 
joined the faculty in Sapporo, 
Hokkaido in Northern Japan in 
succeeding years. 

The program was renewed in 
1957 when UMass and the Uni- 
versity of Hokkaido began a five- 
year exchange under sponsorship 
of the U.S. government's Inter- 
national Cooperation Administra- 
tion (ICA). ICA has since been 
reorganized into AID, the Agen- 
cy for International Develop- 
ment. 

Under the exchange program, 
UMass professors from the Col- 
lege of Agriculture provided 



technical assistance in agricul- 
ture at the University of Hok- 
kaido, while Japanese professors 
came to UMass. In the five years 
of the program, 40 professors 
were exchanged between the two 
universities. 

In 1956, UMass conferred an 
honorary degree on Harusada 
Suginome, President of the Uni- 
versity of Hokkaido. The Jap- 
anese institution reciprocated 
last year when President Sugi- 
nome traveled 10,000 miles to 
confer an honorary degree on 
President John W. Lederle at 
Charter Day exercises marking 
the 100th anniversary of UMass. 

In 1956, the cornerstone was 
laid for Japan's first Student 
Union building— at the Univer- 
sity of Hokkaido. It is named, 
fittingly, for the man who began 
the historic friendship— William 
S. Clark, third president of 
UMass and first president of the 
University of Hokkaido.

He compared the problem of 
peace to the slavery problem 
which faced the U.S. after it 
first gained its independence. 
Abolition then, like world peace 
now, was a vision which could 
not yet be attained. The prob- 
lem reguired work by people 
who never lived to see the solu- 
tion. He said that the person 
with faith is the one best 
equipped to work under such 
discouraging conditions. 

Another example cited was 
that of the Negro non-violent 
movement. Aimed at the oppres- 
sor's consciences, thia movtratnt 
is achieving the kind of giadual 
success which Jones feels can be 
made on the problem of war. In 
short, he declared the value of 
religious faith to be the constant 
nourishment of hope, the provid- 
ing of a force to lift morale.

Women's Judiciary Meets With House Councils 



The Women's Judiciary is a 
campus governing body composed 
of two seniors, two juniors, and 
one sophomore who meet weekly 
to discuss disciplinary measures 
in regard to the women students. 

The Judiciary holds elections 
every spring. Those girls who are 
interested must take out nomina- 
tion papers and obtain signatures 
for their endorsement. These pa- 
pers are returned to the RSO of- 
fice and Women's Judiciary then 
interviews the candidates. The 
best qualified girls are chosen by 
the Judiciary and an open elec- 
tion is then held. 

At the beginning of the school 
year, Women's Judiciary meets 
with all the House Councils. Any 
cases which exceed the jurisdic- 
tion of the House Council be- 
come matters of the Women's 
Judiciary. 

There have been no new deci- 
sions or rules passed recently by 



the Judiciary. 

The Chief Justice of Women's 
Judiciary is also a representative 
of the University Disciplinary 
Board. 

Although Women's Judiciary is 
not as well known to the women 
on campus as are the House 
Councils, it plays a large part in 
helping students to adjust to stu- 
dent life at the University.

DR. KARPOVICH 



Employees To 
Pick Queen 
Candidate 

University of Massachusetts 
employees will choose a queen 
candidate on Wednesday, Oct. 2, 
to compete for the title of Miss 
Massachusetts State Employee. 

The local contest is scheduled 
for 8 p.m. Wednesday in the 
Colonial Lounge of the Student 
Union. 

Arthur Benoit of South Hadley 
Falls, maintenance foreman at 
the University, is in charge of 
the contest. Mrs. Bertille Brozdal 
is assisting with arrangements. 

The campus competition is 
open to all girls, married or sin- 
gle, who work at the University. 
Employees who want to make 
nominations should call Mrs. 
Drozdal at 545-2631. 

The local winner will represent 
UMass at a dinner-dance in Bos- 
ton on Oct. 10, when the Massa- 
chusetts State Employees Asso- 
ciation will crown a queen and 
four princesses. 



Born in Russia in 1896, and 
naturalized as an American in 
1935, Dr. Karpovich received his 
M.D. in 1919 from the Leningrad 
State Military Academy. He 
served in various capacities in 
Russia before becoming Profes- 
sor of Physiology at Springfield 
College in 1927. 

He spoke about the effects of 
certain foods on the performance 
of athletes, and cited examples 
where college athletes were giv- 
en sugar or other stimulants be- 
fore games. Dr. Karpovich added 
that tests have shown that these 
foods made no appreciable dif- 
ference in the performance of the 
athletes. 

With Dr. Karpovich was his 
former pupil, Dr. Benjamin Ricci, 
Human Anatamy and Physiology 
Professor here at UMass. 

Dr. Karpovich and his electro- 
goniometer, invented by him and 
his son in 1958, attained nation- 
wide prominence when he 
showed that high-heeled shoes 
dia not cause women's arches to 
fall.

once a week for six weeks. 

The groups will offer, first of 
all, an opportunity to express 
yourself freely and to discuss 
with fellow students a topic of 
common concern; secondly, a 
learning situation free from the 
temptation to pursue marks 
rather than knowledge; third, a 
chance to come to know a small 
number of your classmates quite 
well; and finally, a lot of fun and 
a worthwhile experience for the 
student who likes to exchange 
ideas, debate subjects, differ with 
each other, etc. The student who 
likes just to hear others doing 
these things will also enjoy at- 
tending.

As was the case last year, Stan 
Kenton is Chief Advisor, and will 
again attend the show. He was 
quoted after the show as refer- 
ring to the affair as a "spectacu- 
lar." and added that "Never in 
my life have I ever seen a more 
talented group of performers."

Announced 

There were eleven even tables 
in play Thursday. Sept. 26th. In 
order to stop at 10 as announced 
only ten of the eleven moves

The ABC Radio Network car- 
ried two hours of last year's 
show live, and reported an aver- 
age listening audience of well 
over one million; the network 
has already begun negotiations 
for complete coverage for IJF

Down Beat Magazine is again 
giving the Festival full coverage. 
Scouts from most of the coun- 
try's record companies and book- 
ing agencies will be in attend- 
ance. 

Because of the early date, 
deadline for applications will be 
November 15. Final selection of 
contestants will be made by 
taped auditions to be held at and 
conducted by the Berklee School 
of Music on January 4. 1964. In- 
terested groups should submit a 
tape of about fifteen minutes to 
our address above. If possible,

"Eskimo Graphic Art," an ex- 
hibit of 50 stone-block and seal- 
skin prints, both color and black 
and white, will open this Sunday, 
Oct. 6, in the Commonwealth 
Room of the Student Union. 

The exhibition of native Es- 
kimo art will continue until Oct. 
27. The public is cordially invited 
to view the exhibit. 

The prints, collected in 1960, 
come from Cape Dorset, a small, 
isolated community on Baffin Is- 
land in the Canadian Arctic. 

The exhibition is being cir- 
culated in the U.S. by the Travel- 
ing Exhibition Service of the 
Smithsonian Institution. 

Prints in the exhibit depici the 
customs and major concerns of 
Eskimo artists. 

Day-to-day experiences furnish 
subject matter for most of the 
prints. Some also reflect Es- 
kimos' preoccupations with a 
spirit world. 

Because the Eskimos conceive 
their subject images as simpli- 
fied, rhythmic forms, many of 
the prints are almost abstract in 
their execution. 

The Eskimos use both sealskin 
and stone-block processes. In the 
first of these, they use a sealskin 
stencil in a process by which the 
design is transferred to a piece 
of sealskin. The sealskin is then 
cut out in the manner of a sten- 
cil and placed on a sheet of pa- 
per with cC -»r being added to 
the openings in the stencil. 

In the second, called the stone- 
cut process, the design is trans- 
ferred to and then cut out in low 
relief on the surface of a flat- 
tened and polished piece of soap- 
stone. The stone is inked and 
a sheet of paper placed upon the 
surface to receive the impression.

'HELP SANDY OLSON' COMMITTEE GROWS 



by JOAN JONES 

One of the most popular musi- 
cal shows in American stage 
history. Meredith Willson's The 
Music Man, is coming to Bowker 
Theatre on Oct. 31, Nov. 1 and 2. 
with an additional Saturday 
matinee. This is the tune-filled 
tale of a brassy, sassy, lovable 
rogue who comes to a little Iowa 
town in the 1912 era to fleece its 
citizens with an original gold- 
brick scheme. 

His intention is to excite in 
the townspeople a desire to 
organize a brass band, to collect 
their money for instruments, 
uniforms and sheet music, and 
then to disappear with the loot 
without teaching anyone to toot 
a horn as he had promised. 

One of the numbers that in- 
variably stops the show is "Ya 
Got Trouble," a warning to the 
Mothers of River City to watch 
for the telltale signs of corrup- 
tion in their youth. The solution, 
says the Professor, is to direct 
them into the wholesome acti- 
vity of blowing horns and beat- 
ing drums, triangles and cym- 
bals. 

The trick works. The towns- 
people load Harold Hill with 
their money, but the rascally 
trickster cant skip town — he has 
met the lovely librarian — Marian 
the librarian, who at first is sus- 
picious and cool to him.

course, bring about the conman's 
reform, and he wins the librar- 
ian, but not before the audience 
is worn with laughter and lifted 
by seventeen lilting or rousing 
songs. 

The shows ends on what the 
New York critics agreed was one 
of the most stirring "happy end- 
ings" of any musical comedy: 
the town has its brass band, and 
everybody is grinning and pran- 
cing as it plays the famous raf- 
ter-shaking "Seventy-Six Trom- 
bones." Audiences have "joined 
the show" at this point, delight- 
ing at the wholesome fun that 
every child as well as every adult 
can take pleasure in. 

Jack Singer (Harold) will be 
seen in the role of the efferve- 
scent con-man, Peggy Jones 
(Marian) will be the charming 
librarian who changes his plans. 
Others in the cast will be Rich- 
ard Martin (Winthrop) as her 
shy kid brother with an unshak- 
able faith in the swindler, David 
Bachmann (Mayor Shinn) as the 
mayor of the town, Jane Abbiati 
(Eulalie) as his wife, and Janet 
Bilodeau (Mrs. Paroo) as the 
heroine's mother. 

Wayne Lamb, as director and 
choreographer, is staging the 
pulse-raising marching of the 
"Seventy-Six Trombones" num- 
ber, the tippy-toed ballet spoof- 
ing the command for silence in 
Marian's library, the "Shipoopi" 
gala of bloomer-clad girls in a 
high school gymnasium and the 
other exuberant dances in the 
show.

Amherst Centtr 



by DAVE IIAKAC Z 

We are all familiar with the 
stereotype of the "old fashioned 
country doctor," making his way 
through a storm in the night to 
a patient's home with just the 
contents of his black leather 
bag as weapons against disease. 
We are just as much aware of 
the modern teams of doctors, 
working in close co-operation 
with technicians and specialists 
with the latest drugs and equip- 
ment to produce what would be 
termed miracles a few decades 
ago. 

There is, though, one factor in 
medicine that has remained con- 
stant; that is the need for time 
for the body to recover from the 
rigors of attack by disease and 
even from the effects of the life- 
saving treatments. By the com- 



bination of speed and modern 
medical techniques and equip- 
ment, Sandra Olson's life has 
been spared; but the story does 
not end here. 

The story indeed continues for 
a long time, since "Sandy," as 
she is known to her friends here 
and from Worcester's North 
High, from which she graduated 
last year grst in her class of 435, 
faces a long recuperation from 
her recent historic operation in 
the pressure chamber at Boston's 
Children's Hospital. 

Originally, it was a small group 
of Sandra's friends from North 
High who saw the need to help 
her through the difficult months 
ahead. Forming the "Committee 
to Help Sandra Olson," their 
first act was the procurement of 
a large get well card to be signed

Frosh Upset Footrick Apprehensive 

In a eruelling cross country m. JL 



In a gruelling cross country 
race Saturday afternoon at New 
London, Conn., the Mass frosh 
were bested by the Coast Guard 
26-29. Despite strong efforts by 
Bob St. Clair, New Jersey high 
school record holder, and Char- 
ley "Flash" Mitchel, former 
Fairhaven high captain, who 
finished first and third, respec- 
tively, the Coast Guard dis- 
played power in sweeping second, 
fourth and sixth places, while 
Mass took seventh, eighth and 
tenth places. 

A pleasant surprise for the 
Redmen proved to be Mike Dug- 
gan, who exceeded pre-season 
expectations and finished a 
strong seventh. The f urning 
point of the 3.1 mile track came 
when Manfredi of Mass, run- 
ning a strong second half way 
through the race, suddenly re- 
ceived an attack of stomach 
cramps and barely managed to 
eke out tenth place. 

This was the first loss for the 
freshmen cross country team in 
three years. As a result the 
squad was called upon Sunday 
afternoon to jog a few miles, 
athough prevailing conditions 
were under par. 

Next week the Redmen travel

their first victory.

S.U. DANCE COMMITTEE 

There will be a meeting Tues., 
Oct. 8, at 11 a.m. in the Nan- 
tucket Room of the S.U. 



Coach Bill Footrick looks with 
apprehension at this Saturday's 
cross country trimeet between 
the University of Massachu- 
setts, Northeastern and Maine 
at Franklin Park, Boston, at 2 
p.m. 

Footrick's harriers opened 
their season last Saturday with 
a one-sided 18-40 win at Coast 
Guard. But the Redmen mentor 
points out that Northeastern 
won its opening meet handily 
and that Maine is always a dan- 
gerous opponent. 

Redman ace Bob Brouillet 
(Phillipston) broke the Coast 
Guard course record covering 



the 3.9 mile course in the time

Does a man really take unfair advantage of women 
when he uses Mennen Skin Bracer? 

All depends on why he uses it. 

Most men simply think Menthol-Iced Skin Bracer is the best 
after-shave lotion around. Because it cools rather than burns . 
Because it helps heal shaving nicks and scrapes. Because it 
helps prevent blemishes. 

So who can blame them if Bracer's crisp, long-lasting aroma 
just happens to affect women so remarkably? 

Of course, some men may use Mennen Skin Bracer because 
of this effect. Z^. 

How intelligent! (M)

Bucknell Bisons Expected 
To Bring Redmen Trouble 



by STEVE HEWEY 

Take one Bucknell quarter- 
back who has completed 23 of 
29 passes this season. Then, add 
to this two glue-fingered Buck- 
nell ends who have eight recep- 
tions each. What you have is a 
stew that may boil over onto 
Alumni Field when the Bucknell 
University Bisons appear on to- 
morrow's Redmen home menu. 

Bison head chef Bob Odell has 
one favorite recipe. And when he 
has the proper ingredients his fa- 
vorite dish is a spicy passing at- 
tack. 

The chef seems to have the in- 
gredients this year. He has Don 
Rogers at quarterback and Tom 
Mitchell and Phil Morgan at end. 
And for a little added flavor 
Odell throws in reserve quarter- 
back Bill Lerro. And so far this 
season passing has been the 



bread and butter of the Bison of- 
fence. 

THIS MAIN course has given 
rival coaches indigestion two 
weeks in a row. Dartmouth 
coach Bob Blackburn had the 
more painful case last Saturday. 
His Dartmouth eleven nipped the 
Bisons, 20 to 18, but not before 
Bucknell completed 18 of 22 
passes. The week previous Buck- 
nell bested Gettysburg, 19-7. 
thanks to some crafty passing 
work. 

The Bisons' first string signal 
caller, Senior Don Rogers, spent 
two years on the bench while a 
couple of other pass-minded 
boys, Don Giordano and Norm 
Garrity, gave opponents the fits, 
including UMass. With these two 
no longer around, Rogers is earn- 
ing a name of his own. 

In two games Rogers has

clicked on 23 of 29 passes for 255 
yards and 4 TD's. In the Dart- 
mouth game he found his man on 
14 of the 17 he threw. His un- 
derstudy, Bill Lerro, also has a 
knack for hitting receivers. He 
has 5 for 7. 

ENDS PHIL MORGAN, 6'0, 
and Sophomore Tom Mitchell, 
6'2, have helped Rogers' flashy 
start. Mitchell has caught eight 
passes for 165 yards and two 
TD's. Morgan has eight recep- 
tions good for 78 yards. Both 
boys are speedsters and have 
sure hands which they can put to 
good use. 

The Bisons' running game is 
not as tangy as their main 
course. Dartmouth held Bucknell 
to a scant 26 yards rushing. In 
two games the Bucknell rushing 
yardage totals 234. Halfback Bob 
Laughton, 511, 195, has account- 
ed for 132 yards of that total in 
30 carries. 

Bucknell has sp* it most of the 
past week on drills to bolster its 
ground game and point after 
conversions. Failure to achieve 
conversions after touchdowns 
last Saturday cost the Bisons a 
victory at Dartmouth. Bucknell 
wants to be especially sure of ex- 
tra points tomorrow because the 
Redmen beat them by the mar- 
gin of one point last year. 

UMASS COACH Vic Fusia, 
disappointed with the Redmen 
offense, has had his backfield go- 
ing through extra effort in 
workouts the past few days. Fu- 
sia is attempting to cut down on 
the backfield in motion and ille-

BOB ELLIS, earning a starting slot against Bucknell, after 
his great Harvard effort. 



UMass has not displayed any of- 
fensive consistency. 

Pass defense has not been 
overlooked in recent drills either. 
UM defenders realize that an ex- 
tra effort is in order to retain an 
air minded Bucknell offense. 

UMass could become a little 
air minded itself tomorrow. In 
two games to date quarterback 
Jerry Whelchel has yet to throw 
the ball with the frequency and 
accuracy that he is capable of. 
With 6'4 Milt Morin at one end 
and 6'3 Bob Meers at the other 
end serving as tempting targets 
and with a heavier Redman line 
for protection, Whelchel could 
give the Bisons fits with a pass- 
ing attack of his own. 

AFTER THE Harvard contest 
Fusia has made some changes in 
his starting lineup. Sophomores 
Bernie Dallas and Bob Ellis have 
been moved up to the starting 
center and left half positions. 
Junior Ken Palm has been moved 
up to the right half slot. 

UM vs. Bucknell Last Year 

The Redmen met Bucknell for 
the first time in their football 
history last season and escaped 
with a 21-20 win. It took a Whel- 
chel pass to halfback Loren 
Flagg with two seconds left to 
accomplish the feat. Whelchel 
had one of his finest days as he 
completed 10 of 17 passes for 
161 yards and two TD's. 

Bucknell quarterbacks Ron Gi- 
ordano and Norm Garrity 



teamed up to complete 24 of the 
41 passes they attempted against 
the Redmen in a losing effort. 

REDMEN LETTER CLUB 

Two weeks ago UM Coach Vic 
Fusia initiated his REDMAN 
Letter Club. For each outstand- 
ing play he takes part in, a 
UMass player gets a little de- 
cal letter for his helmet until the 
word REDMAN is spelled out. 
Halfback Bob Ellis has already 
earned the seven letters that 
spell out REDMAN across his 
helmet for his outstanding work 
against Harvard. Other players

Redmen Band At 
First Home Game 




Sandra Olson Survives 
Ordeal To Make History 



— Photo by Bill Green 
I Mass Redman Marching Band under their director, John Jen- 
kins, presented History of HI-FI Saturday at first home game 
of season against Bucknell. 



UMass freshman Sandra Olson 
will celebrate her 18th birthday 
Friday thanks to the pressure 
chamber at Children's Hospital 
and to the quick-acting doctors 
who set a new milestone in med- 
icine in her recovery. 

Sandra is the first person in 
the United States known to be 
saved from gas gangrene death 
by a compression chamber. 

The experience that the doc- 
tors gained will save other lives 
in the future. 

The tank, believed to be the 
only one in the nation available 
at present to a hospital, Is 
leased from the Harvard School 
of Public Health. It is the same 
one used recently in a vain ef- 
fort to save the life af Patrick

FRESHMEN TO DISCUSS 
COLLEGE LIFE AND GOALS 



Today, freshmen will have an 
opportunity to sign up for the 
freshmen discussion groups in 
the Counseling and Guidance Of- 
fice, Room E12, Machmer Hall. 
Each freshman should bi.- sent an 
information sheet which can be 
brought to the above office any 
afternoon this week except for 
Friday. The Freshman will dis- 
cuss college life and college 
goals. The small groups are de- 
signed to stimulate students to 

Two Students 
Involved In 
Car Accident 

A rear end collision in front 
of Memorial Hall Saturday aft- 
ernoon caused "extensive dam- 
age'* to two cars operated by 
UMass students. 

There were no personal in- 
juries, reported Campus Police 
Officer Frank Mazzei. 

A black 1957 Chevrolet sedan, 
operated by John L. Puzine '67, 
struck the left rear end of a red 
and white 1957 Chevrolet sedan, 
operated by Anthony Simone '64, 
at 4:10 p.m. Puzine's vehicle was 
damaged in the right front. 

Both students are residents of 
Northampton, Puzine at 384 
South Street, and Simone at 
280 Elm Street. 

The car were traveling north 
on Ellis Drive. Campus officers 
Mazzei and Donald Zedik were 
in the vicinity of Ellis Drive 
when the accident occured, Maz- 
zei said. Officer Mazzei said there 
was no estimate on the cost of 
damage as yet. 

With Puzine were five pas- 
sengers, including three UMass 
students. They were Mary Boyn- 
ton, Edna Shea, John Schodegg, 
Jon Campbell '67; Bruce Schu- 
mikowski '67. 



search out their personal, educa- 
tional and vocational goals in a 
very active fashion. It is hoped 
that the freshman will leave 
their seminar experiences with 
deepened appreciation for the in- 
tellectual opportunities at the 
University. 

Preparation for these groups 
need not be extensive. Suggested 
topics or reading will be made 
ahad of time. It is unlikely that 
you would feel it necessary to 
spend more than 15-30 minutes 
thinking about or preparing for 
each session. 

Some topics may be "What 
Makes A Good Professor" Find- 
ing Purpose in Day to Day 
Studies "The College Student 
and Religious Belief" Sex on the 
College Campus" "The Care and 
Feeding of Parents." 

If you decide to join, you are 
asked to agree to attend all six 
sessions. You will need to devote 
1*4 hours of your time to each 
of the six meetings. 

You may consult your counsel- 
or, Head of Residence, or Mrs. 



Asmussen, Extension 2562 if you 
need information before making 
up your mind. 

A number of upperclassmen 
are already actively and en- 
thusiastically prep**iing to lead 
the seminars. 

BUI Passed 
For Senate 
Recorder 

A motion which has been pend- 
ing for more than a year was 
finally resolved by the Senate 
last night, when a bill, calling 
for the appropriation of $150.00 
for hiring a Senate recorder, was 
approved. 

As was pointed out by Senator 
Ross Jones (Brett), chairman of 
the Finance Committee, this re- 
corder will "take abstracted 
minutes, type up mimeo copies of 
said minutes and such other 
functions as assigned by the 
Senate secretary." 



Associated Industries 
Presents Organ To UM 



The beautiful new Hammond 
Electric Organ now located in 
the Cape Cod Lounge, was pre- 
sented to the Student Union 
through the courtesy of the As- 
sociated Industries of Massachu- 
setts and the Conference Depart- 
ment of the University. 

Mr. Robert A. Chadbourne, 
Executive Vice President of the 
Associated Industries of Massa- 
chusetts, Mr. Philip A. Single- 
ton, President of Pro-phy-lac-tic 
Brush Company, and Mr. Rich- 
ard Frey, Associated Industries 
of Massachusetts Regional Di- 
rector, will be present on Tues- 



day, October 8, 1963, at 11:00 
A.M., to officially present the or- 
gan to the Student Union and 
the University campus. 

On hand to receive the organ 
will be Mr. Harold Durgin, Uni- 
versity Conference Coordinator, 
Robert Brauer, Chairman of the 
Student Union Governing Board, 
Mr. Harold Watts and Miss Mary 
Alden of the Program Office, 
and Mr. William D. Scott, Direc- 
tor of the Student Union.

brane disease. 

Here are the circumstances 
leading to the oxygen therapy 
that saved Sandy Olson: 

She was brought to the Chil- 
dren's Hospital partly on the 
suggestion of Mrs. Patrick (Fo- 
ley) Jackson, a Children's Hos- 
pital nurse up to last June who 
was familiar with the pressure 
chamber. 

She is the wife of Dr. David 
Jackson at Cooley Dickinson 
Hospital, Northampton, who 
was caring for Sandra there. He 
also knew about the pressure 
tank and had read of experi- 
ments abroad with it. 

Dr. Robert E. Gross, surgeon 
in chief at the Children's Hospi- 
tal, and Dr. William Bernhard, 
associate surgeon, who agreed 
to try the pressure chamber 
therapy on Sandra, had no per- 
sonal experience on gas gan- 
grene treatment in the tank to 
guide them. 

The Boston surgeons, v who 
have operated on 29 blue babies 
(with heart defects) in the pres- 
sure chamber the past year, 
knew of experiments at the Uni- 
versity of Glasgow by Sir 
Charles Ililngworth with oxy- 
genation of gangrenous pa- 
tients. 

With only this to go on, the 
doctors placed Sandra in the 
pressure tank shortly after she 
arrived in an ambulance from 
Northampton at 8:45 on Wed- 
nesday, Sept. 25. 

The medical history of San- 
dra's case is this: 

On Sept. 19 she was admitted 
to Cooley Dickinson Hospital

and underwent emergency surg- 
ery for a ruptured appendix. 
She seemed to be making an ex- 
cellent recovery for three days. 
Then on Sept. 22 she complained 
of severe local pain. 

Between that time and Sept. 
25, surgeons at Northampton 
operated twice to remove dead 
tissue They cut out all the mus- 
cles on the right side of the ab- 
dominal wall and most of those 
on the lower left side. 

Dr. Gross and Dr. Bernhard 
said that synthetic materials will 
be used in a future operation to 
give Sandra support to make 
up for the missing muscles. It is 
expected that she will live a 
normal life and that this would 
not interfere with her having 
children. 

Just how gangerene gets un- 
der way is a bit of a mystery. 
Certain environmental condi- 
tions must exist In the system, 
including a lack of oxygen. 

What happens is that common 
organisms called Clostridia, 
which always are in the intes- 
tinal tract, multiply when the 
conditions are right. Oxygen 
lack is a component of such con- 
ditions. The organisms give off 
a poison which kill surrounding 
tissues. The dying tissues give 
off the gas. 

The process is repeated at an 
increasing rate, and usually, un- 
less the gangrene is in a limb 
that can be amputated the pa- 
tient will die. 

In Sandra's case it is believed 
that the organisms entered the 
abdominal cavity from the intes- 
tinal tract through the rupture

The growing rift between the 
Precisionettes and the band 
burst into the open last week as 
the women's drill team refused 
to appear Saturday, and seemed 
headed for disbandment. 

A series of meetings between 
leaders of the group, Band Direc- 
tor John Jenkins, and Dean of

the hopes of resolving the dis- 
pute. 

Senate President Jon Fife has

A Plea For The Return Of Old ID's 

by OLEH 1'AWLl'K 

Although my old student I.D. card was a far cry from a work of 
art, I felt no embarrassment when asked to exhibit it. The old I.D. 
possessed an emblem of the University, a color photograph of the 
student, the description of the student's physical characteristics, and 
the student number along with the class year. 

The Introduction of the new I.D.'n has brought u drastic change. 
My new I.D. makes me feel more like an Inmate of a federal peni- 
tentiary thun a student of a state university. Gone Is the I Mass em- 
blem. Gone are the physical features of the student. The color photo 
has been replaced by a black and white one which bears only the 
slightest resemblance to the actual person. 

The student number has been taken from its inconspicuous place 
In the right bottom corner of the I.D. and printed boldly above th3 
sutdent's name. I realize that in a school of this size classification 
of students by numbers is necessary. However, let us not replace 
the individuality of a name by a series of digits. Yet, this is exactly 
what has happened with the new I.D.'s. In looking at the current 
I.D. card, one notices the large student number before he is even 
able to read the name of the student. 

Students let us unite and break one spoke In the wheel of pro- 
gress at the Inlverslty. LET'S BRING BACK THE OLD I.D.'s. 

"Git Up Yo' Slobs" 

by DAVE HARACZ 

If there are others who read the Times for news but are unso- 
phisticated enough to have a subscription to another paper with 
"funnies," perhaps they too noticed a striking similarity between the 
current adventures of Mammy Yokum and an article on the New 
York World's Fair in the October 5 Times. 

Al Capp, one of the masters of disseminating small portions of 
wisdom In the guise of comics In mass-circulation papers, has sent 
Mammy to the Homeland of the Mldeastern oil sultan, where, ob- 
serving the populace bowing before the approaching monarch, the 
shr.utn, "Git up. yo' slobs !»— yo' is free to act any way yo' wants, as 
long: as It's th' AMERICAN WAY!'" 

According to the Times article. Japanese artisans erecting a 
huge sculptured stone wall designed and executed by sculptor Masa- 
yuki Nogare for the Japanese pavillion at the fair site have their 
own Mammy Yokum in the form of American labor unions. Although 
the men would like, us is their habit in their homeland, to complete 
their work before the onslaught of winter, they are prevented from 
doing so by union regulations which prohibit their working longer 
than a standard American work day. and, as well, by required Ameri- 
can "assistance" to lift, move, or set the stones. 

Ironically, there appears on the editorial page in the same issue 
a stand in favor of lower rates for school children wishing to visit 
the fair, on the grounds that the fair is in essence more a means of 
education than u business venture. If the fair is indeed to be an at- 
tempt to educate, let the host be first in learning to be tolerant of 
the customs of their guests. 

Despite the fact that this is an instance of artists at work, this 
is not a plea for artistic freedom; it is rather an indictment of a so- 
ciety which cannot see its way clear to suspend a few minor rules 
for the sake of much-needed understanding. 



A Review: The Wheel Of Summer 

by DAVE AXELROD 

Analytically. Joseph Langland's new book of verse. The Wheel 
of Summer, contains 65 poems separated into three sections: "Sacri- 
flees." "Equations," and "Poems from The Green Town " The strik- 
ing orange, yellow, and white book jacket, after the intial shock 
grows on you. Diving headlong into the first section, "Sacrifices " the 
cover seems even more appropriate. Among a myriad of allusions 
to glimmering nature-cool spraying trout streams, "sunflooded 
w.iodlands." and "fragrant hayflelds'-there is the stark detailed 
confrontation of death. The poems, often in a child's voice impress 
along with a closeness to a farm existence, an acceptance of the 
ways of life -the killings, the dying, the making impotent. The vlo- 
lent, piled higher and higher but always viewed with simple emotions 
and affections, forces the reader to accept, as a maturing youth must' 
the commonness if not the naturalness of the sacrifices in our world! 

Part two, "Equations," presents a more varied view of life 
though often set in the same sunlit and shining nature. In many 
of the poems here and throughout the book, the repetition of linos 
is effectively employed. The device might be in the form of a single 
Phrase, echoing at the end of a line, or a single thought, repeated 
it the end of a stanza, successfully guiding the intended thoughts 
i our peace will come"). By juxtaposing lines, repeating stanzas V 
poems philosophize, question, point out.

The technicalities tell only 
part of the story. The pic- 
tures, with the stark beauty- 
hold within them a sadness. 

If we move away from the 
Student Union, north to the 
"Barren Lands" in the great 
artic circle we will reach the 
land where these works of 
"graphic art" were made. It 
is still a wild land where 
the winds of the long winter 
vent their rage and fury. It 
is also a land of change. 
Many years ago the first 
missionaries entered this 
wild land speaking of other 
ways. Other ways followed, 
the ways of the Hudson Bay 
traders and the Royal Can- 
adian Mounted Police. 

Today the ways of change 
still fall upon his land, they 
fall heavily and are not re- 
moved. Today the ways of 
the hunt are vanishing with 
the thinning herds of ani- 
mals. 

It is an old sob story you 
may say and shrug your 
shoulders. 

It is an old story, this is 
true. But for the hunters of 
the Barren Land who call 
themselves Ilhamuat, mean- 
ing, "The Men", it is the 
story which is happening to 
them. 

Those who make the gra- 
phic art, now on display at 
the University, paint the 
ways that are dying. As 
these ways die the artists 
themselves are dying. 

Already the jails are filled 
with the drunken Ilhamut as 
poverty and starvation, the 
twin "Demons of the White 
Nothing," called by the Es- 
kimo Xa-gay-iak and Sha- 
Onrlcaaon, rule the land. 

Look well at the graphic 
art that you see. It is the art 
of last people. It is their last 
testimony. 



Me, Madness, Humor 

by MIKE HENCH 

For many years the philosophic attitude of this great 
institute of higher education has been a source of constant 
amazement to me. They seem to have the crux of all the 
philosophies of the world rolled into one big ball of twine. 

Let me offer a few examples of the logic of this most 
difficult ball: 

We have a parking problem. Motor scooters might help 
alleviate some of this problem. So the University taxes 
motor scooters as vehicles, demands insurance on motor 
scooters and tickets motor scooters, for they are, after all, 
motor vehicles. Now the fact that the only company that 
will issue "guest" insurance on a motor scooter is Lloyd'3 
of London does not deter this bulwark of Socratic method. 
For they are protecting you from yourself, knowing that 
you are not capable of doing so. 

Another example is the "road" that runs in front of 
the Old Infirmary and behind the women's dorms. The Uni- 
versity reasons as follows : Students walk on the road ; cars 
drive on the road; cars may hit students; hence we will 
make the road a sidewalk and build another road for cars. 
And everyone knows that it is much cheaper to build a road 
than a sidewalk. One cannot help but feel a little humble in 
the presence of such reasoning. 

One final example should suffice to acquaint one with 
the essence of this philosophical method. But here the blame 
or praise rests with the University's Daddy, Aristotle Leg- 
islature. 

The University police used to collect traffic fines and 
put the money in a scholarship fund. When the University 
got fiscal autonomy it was realized that the taxing agent 
couldn't also be the collecting and receiving agent (like the 
government isn't). So somebody named Meno or something 
like that decided that we could pay our fines in Northamp- 
ton and then the court there would turn the money over 
to the University for a scholarship fund. And since most 
of us live closer to Northampton than Amherst, it is quite 
easy to see that this is a great example of the Philosopher 
King's mind. I stand in awe.

Professor Langland 
Opens Poetry Series 



Prof. Joseph Langland of the 
English department at the Uni- 
versity of Massachusetts will 
open this year's series of Tues- 
day night poetry readings spon- 
sored by the Amherst Art Cen- 
ter. 

Langland will read from his 
"The Wheel of Summer," a vol- 
ume of poetry published recently 
by the Dial Press, at Jones Li- 
brary in Amherst on Tuesday, 
Oct. 8, at 7:30 p.m. 

Langland's poetry readings 
will be accompanied in part by 
musical settings composed by 
Elliott Schwartz of the UMass 
music department. 

Musical settings by Schwartz 
were voted among the most out- 
standing presented this past 
summer at the Bennington Com- 
posers Conference, Bennington, 
Vt. 

Temporary Parking 
Permits Available 
To Students 

Col. John Merchant has an- 
nounced that temporary parking 
permits will be available to stu- 
dents of all classes beginning 
Monday, Oct. 7. 

The permits will be issued for 
limited periods, according to the 
student's need, by Mr. Harold 
Watts in the S.U. Program Of- 
fice. 

"As a very limited number of 
the permits is available," Mr. 
Watts said, "the reasons for 
needing a car must be very good 
ones." Legitimate reasons would 
include committee work for ma- 
jor University events. 

The permits will allow stu- 
dents to park anywhere on cam- 
pus with the exception of those 
areas expressly restricted to stu- 
dents. 

The student, upon being issued 
a temporary permit, should pro- 
vide the registration number of 
the car for which it is being 
used, the reason for needing a 
car, and the length of time for 
which the permit has been is- 
sued. 

Langland's latest collection of 



poems Is drawn lergely from the 
Mid-western background of his 
youth. 

Langland is the author of one 
previous collection of poems, 
"The Green Town," which was 
published in 1956. He is also co- 
editor of "Poet's Choice," an an- 
thology published last year. 

Langland's own poems have 
appeared in several anthologies. 
He has published widely in 
literary magazines and is co-edi- 
tor of "The Short Story," a col- 
lege text. Last year he repres- 
ented UMass on ABC television's 
"Meet the Professor" program. 

The public is cordially invited 
to the event. Refreshments will 
be served.

of the appendix. Conditions 
Were right for the Clostridia to

Rushed to Boston 

The doctors at Cooley Dick- 
inson Hospital, finding that they 
could not get oxygen to the 
site, and could not cut out more 
tissue, rushed Sandra to the 
Children's Hospital. 

She arrived at 8:25 p.m. on 
Wednesday, Sept. 25, and was 
placed in the tank at 11:45 for 
two hours at three atmospheres 
(the same pressure as in a div- 
ing suit 66 feet below the sur- 
face) . 

The saturation of her tissues 
thus was raised 15 to 18 time*

her body tissues by the overall 
pressure of SO pounds per 
square Inch. At the same time 
she breathed pure oxygen from 
an oxygen tank. 

When oxygen surrounds the 
organisms that cause gangrene 
they curl up and die and the 
spread of the disease is halted. 

Just how much oxygen under 
pressure this would take, the 
doctors still don't know. It is 
possible that even the first tank 
session, which included some 
surgery to remove additional 
dead tissue, did the trick. 

But to make certain they put

Father Owen Bennett To Teach 
Course In Christian Philosophy 



by ANN MILLER '64 

Perhaps the most Important 
issue facing today's college stu- 
dent is to see "that his religious 
development keeps pace with his 
intellectual development," said 
the Reverend Owen Bennett. 

Father Bennett is this semes- 
ter teaching a course in Chris- 
tain Philosophy at the Univer- 
sity's Newman Center. 

Wednesday evening he led the 
second in the weekly series of 
classes at the Center. The classes 
are open to all Interested per- 
sons. 

"Most falling away from reli- 
gion comes at the College age," 
Father Bennett commented, due 
to the student failing to develop 
an intellectual approach to reli- 
gion as he does in other spheres. 

Father Bennett is a Francis- 
can who received his education 
at St. Michael's College in Wi- 
nooski, Vermont, at St. Anthony- 
on-Hudson Seminary in Rens- 
selaer, New York, and at the 
Catholic University of America 
in Washington, D.C. He received 
his doctorate in Philosophy in 
1943 at the Catholic University. 

Defining his subject, Father 
Bennett said Christian Philoso- 
phy is that philosophy in which 
the conclusions of reason are 
completed by the revelations of 
Christianity, which finds its nat- 
ural "crowning and completion" 
in the revealed Christian truth 
of God. 

Presently teaching a similar 
course at Renssaelaer Polytech- 
nic Institute in New York, Fath- 
er Bennett favors the metaphy- 
sical approach over the historical 
approach in studying religious 
philosophy. 

The Historical approach, that

which systematically builds up 
and tears down each school of 
thought is "very necessary", he 
said, but "generates a sort of 
skeptic mentality in the stu- 
dent." 

"Only in the metaphysical tra- 
dition can one find a strong 
foundation," he said. This is the 
tradition of Plato, Aristotle, 
Aquinas and, among contem- 
poraries, Gilson, Maritain and 
Marcel, he added. 

We could, today, "do a lot less 
categorizing in philosophy," he

History Club Sponsors 
Discussion Of Vietnam 



The History Club is holding its 
first meeting of the year on Wed- 
nesday, October 9, at 8 p.m. in 
the Nantucket Room of the Stu- 
dent Union. There will be a short 
business meeting until 8:15 dur- 
ing which the program for the 
year will be discussed and mem- 
bers will be recorded. History 
majors are encouraged to join 
the club as many opportunities 
will be afforded to meet depart- 
ment members and to discuss 

subjects of both timely and his- 
torical interest. 

The program will start at 8:15 



with Dr. Luthor Allen leading 
an informal lecture and discus- 
sion on the Vietnam Situation. 
Dr. Allen, a well-known authori- 
ty on Vietnam, has spent several 
years there and has become well 
acquainted with its problems. He 
is also presently serving on sev- 
eral committees studying Viet- 
nam. 

The meeting promises to be of 
great interest not only to history 
majors but to the general public. 
All are welcome to attend. Those 
interested in joining the club are 
urged to come particularly to the 
business meeting at 8:00. 



Campus International 
Programs Increase 



by MIKE SCHWARTZ 

(Editor's note: Mr. Schwartz is 
a Special Assistant for the Inter- 
national Commission of the 
United States National Student 
Association and has been in 
charge of various international 
campus programs at the Univer- 
sity of Wisconsin.) 

All across the United States, 
student leaders and student gov- 
ernments are pushing for a 
change in their international 
campus programs. As witnessed 
by the discussions on campus in- 
ternational programs held during 
the 16th National Student Con- 
gress at Indiana University this 
summer, student leaders realize 
that the old standard types of in- 
ternational programs, such as in- 
ternational nights, Brother-Sis- 
ter programs, foreign student 
teas, etc., are not fulfilling the 
needs of any one on the cam- 
pus. 

The reason for the concern of 
these campus leaders is that to- 
day we are living in a world in 
which all nations have closer 
ties than ever before, whether 
these ties be friendly or not. We 
are not just part of the world, 
but the world is part of our daily 
lives and is something which we 
cannot really escape. 



This must be important to us, 
because of the role of the United 
States in this new and different 
world: and because of the role 
of each and every citizen of the 
United States in the actions of 
our country. One purpose of uni- 
versity training, under the Amer- 
ican theory of education, is the 
creation in each student-citizen 
the awareness of the role which 
he is to play in his society and 
his world. Since 1898, the United 
States has become increasingly 
important in world affairs, and 
the people of the U.S. have 
played with the responsibility 
thus thrust upon them, some- 
times taking a great interest, 
sometimes trying to escape from 
it all by hiding from it. 

Since World War II, the 
American public has shown it re- 
alizes we cannot avoid the world, 
but must face up to it. The de- 
bate is not now concerned with 
whether or not to be concerned, 
but with what action the U.S. 
should take in world affairs, how 
we should do this, with whom 
we should work, etc. There is 
disagreement on this, as there 
should be in a democratic so- 
ciety, but not disavowal. 

If awareness of the interna- 
tional scene and the ability to

UT Starts Second Season 



196364, the first academic 
year of UMass' second century 
of outstanding achievement also 
marks the second year of the 
University of Massachusetts 
Theatre. 

After a successful first season 
of plays, lectures, and courses, 
the Theatre, a UT spokesman 
said, is continuing its promise to 
present the very best dramatic 
literature in distinctive produc- 
tions which are related to the 
spirit of the age that produced 
them. 

This year the University The- 
atre will offer five plays, four 
lectures, and two exhibitions of 
theatrical art. The first play 
planned for the '63-'64 season 
will be The Twin Menaechmi, by 
the master of Roman comedy. 
Titus Plautus. Hendrick Ibsen's 
Ghosts will be next, followed by 
Shakespeare's Othello, which wil 
be presented during the March 
Fine Arts Festival. 

Also in March there will be a 
new feature of the University 
Theatre, a reading production of 
a new play by an American play* 
wright. The current season will 
then come to a close in April 
with an Arena production of 
Robert Penn Warren's AU The 
King's Men. 

Season tickets for this year's 
program are now on sale for $5. 
The supply of season tickets Is 
limited, and may be obtained 
from a member of the Roister 
Doister Drama club or by send- 
ing a check to the University 
Theatre, Department of Speech. 




"What did you say was his disorder, Sir? Inform me, Is he mad, 
or Is he frantic? Is It a lethargy, or Is he dropsical?" Tom Ker- 
rigan (father-in-law of Menaechmus I) and Robert Thornley 
(doctor) rehearse a scene from "The Twin Menaechmi, a farcical 
Roman comedy. The first University Theatre production of the 
year will be staged October 17, 18, and 19 In Bowker Auditorium. 
Tickets are available from members of Roister Dolsters or from 
the Speech Department. Season tickets for the five-play season 
are still available. 



Amherst Has New Physics Lab 



Amherst College has estab- 
lished a modern teaching labora- 
tory for nuclear and atomic phy- 
sics, matching its own funds with 
those from a $14,130 grant from 
the National Science Founda- 
tion. 

The laboratory is composed of 
flexible electronic circuits and 

grasp its basic concepts and use 
them is part of the responsibility 
as a citizen, and the educational 
system is given the responsibility 
to develop these qualities, then 
th university has a responsibility 
to either develop or encourage 
the development of student in- 
terst or awareness in interna- 
tional affairs. This becomes an 
issue of educational policy, of 
the role of the university in the 
society, the structure of the uni- 
versity in relation to the first 
two items, and many other 
items, and many other questions. 
On many campuses, there is 
another factor added to all this, 
one which can be both an aid to 
international programs or a trou- 
bling matter all by itself. This 
factor is the foreign student, 
whose numbers and importance 
are steadily increasing. Both 
students and university admin- 
istrations have become increas- 
ingly concerned with the prob- 
lems of the foreign student, as 
witnessed by the continuing re- 
evaluations and re-directions of 
the programs during the past

Watch Your Language 



Watch your language! 

You may be insulting your 
friends without knowing it — and 
perhaps getting away with it if 
they, too, are unaware of the 
sinister meanings concealed in 
such harmless words as "pal," 
"neighbor" or "guy." 

"Pal" is a gypsy word mean- 
ing brother — or accomplice. In 
America, a "guy" is any human 
male, but to Britons a "guy" is 
an odd, funny-looking character. 
The word goes back to Guy 
Fawkes, who in 1605 tried to 
blow up Parliament. 

Neighbor" literally means

"the boor who lives nigh us!" 
"Boor" carried no stigma in 
golden days; it means simply 
farmer. 

Many common words have 
changed, even reversed, their 
meanings — with amusing re- 
sults. "Silly" once meant good 
or happy, in the sense of inno- 
cenct, while "nice" means what 
"fastidious" now means: overly 
fussy and finicky. ("Fastidium" 
Is Latin for loathing!) Call a 
woman a hussy today and she'll 
slap your face — but a few cen- 
turies back "hussy" was just 
the shortened form of "house- 
wife." 

Believe it or not. a "gossip" 
was once a "God-sib," or a "rel- 
ative in the sight of God!" The 
term was applied to godparents 
who were expected to form a 
close and intimate relaitoiship 
with the family whose child 
they sponsored. From this mood 
of confiding intmacy. it's not 
hard to see how the present 
morning of "gossip" evolved. 

Words come into beins in a 
fascinating variety of ways. 
Some are imitative of sounds — 
like "hiss" "bang." "gurgle," 
"gibberish." Some words are 
named after men like Dr. Guil- 
ulotin, who suggested the "guil- 
lotine." According to Webster's 
Third New International Dic- 
tionary, an Irish landlord named 
Boycott gave us that word — by 
being so harsh and downright 
ornery that his tenants finally 
"boycotted" him. 

Many words, especially the 
scientific ones, are made up to 
mit a need. Feeling that the oc- 
tane method of rating gasoline 
should be improved because it 
measures only two attributes, 
scientists developed the mega- 
tane rating system to measure 
all 21 of the qualities that are 
important in gasoline. The sys* 
them, which any gasoline man- 
ufacturer may use, was named 
from the Greek "mega," many 
or much, and "tane," the suffix

Gulf Research Director

UNIVERSITY THEATRE SPONSORS 
EXHIBITION OF ENGLISH TOY THEATRES 



Dr. Henry A Ambrose, director 
of the new products division at 
Gulf Research and Development 
Co., in Harmarville. Pa., will 
meet with University of Massa- 
chusetts officials this Friday, 
Oct. 4, and then inspect the Uni- 
versity's growing research facili- 
ties. 

Dr. Ambrose will confer with 
a number of leaders in various 
research fields during his day-

few years. 

The student concern in this 
area is, and should be, in the cur- 
ricular and co-curricular aspects 
of the university experience of 
the student body. The university- 
has the responsibility to provide 
the students with the opportu- 
nity to study all areas and ques- 
tions dealing with international 
affairs, history and methods on 
whatever level the student 
chooses. A wide variety of 
courses in international studies, 
languages, anthropology, history, 
economics, political science, geo- 
graphy and sociology should be 
offered. But it is up to the stu- 
dent to pressure the university 
to offer such courses. 

The university can also foster 
international awareness pro- 
grams through presenting speak- 
ers in the area of international 
affairs through its all-campus 
lecture program, and through en- 
couraging departmentally spon- 
sored study groups or other ac- 
tivities. Students can use simi- 
lar channels, sponsoring speak- 
ers through forums, symposia, 
and other media of exchange, 
and through establishing groups 
interested in the various aspects 
of world affairs. 

By encouraging academically 
oriented international programs, 
the student government can tap 
the ever-expanding resources of 
the university in international af- 
fairs. This kind of program can 
also aid students in uncovering 
new areas for research and study 
in the international field. The 
student leaders who met at In- 
diana University this summer 
have become aware of the pos- 
sibilities for student activity. It 
is important that all not only 
become aware, but also make use 
of all of the opportunities open 
to us. 



The Gulf research official is 
slated to meet Dr. E. E. Lindsey, 
acting Dean of the School of En- 
gineering; Dr. I. Moyer Huns- 
berger, dean of the College of 
Arts and Science; Dr. Richard S. 
Stein, Commonwealth professor 
of chemistry and director of the 
Polymer Research Institute; Dr. 
Franklin W. Southwick and Dr. 
Mack Drake in the agronomy de- 
partment; Dr. Warren Litsky. 
Commonwealth research profes- 
sor of microbiology; and Dr. Wil- 
liam B. Esselen. Commonwealth 
head of the University's food sci- 
ence and technology department. 

Dr. Ambrose, a native of New- 
ton and a graduate of Norwich 
University, received his Ph.D. 
from Massachusetts Institute of 
Technology in 1929. 

He has been associated with 
Gulf Research and Development 
Co. (GRDO since 1929, when he 
started as a fellow at Mellon In- 
stitute in Pittsburgh, Pa. 

He was appointed assistant 
head of the GRDC chemistry di- 
vision in 1937. Dr. Ambrose has 
been director of the new prod- 
ucts division since 1952. 

A member of the board of 
trustees at Norwich University, 
Dr. Ambrose is also active in 
several scientific and professional

Less logical was Belgian 
chemist Van Helmont, who in

and christened it "gas." What 
led him to originate this name, 
he couldn't say — except that the 
formless puffs vaguely remind- 
ed him of the Greek word 
"chaos." 

The word "oxygen" was born 
of a scientific mistake. Because 
Antoine Lavoisier, the French 
discoverer of oxygen, thought it 
was an essential component of 
all acids, he named the sub- 
stance from the Greek "oxys,"

18 GREEN STREET 





Amherst, Mass. — An exhibi- 
tion of English toy theatres, rel- 
ics of the early middle yean of 
the 19th Century, will go on dis- 
play this Saturday in the lobby 
of Bartlett Hall at the Univer- 
sity of Massachusetts. 

The display will continue 
through Sunday, Oct. 20. The 
public is cordially invited to view 
the exhibition. 

The 18 pieces to be shown at 
UMass are from the collection 
of famed actor Alfred Lunt. 

The exhibition is sponsored by 
the speech department at the 
University in conjunction with 
the University Theatre's 1963-64 
drama series. The toy theatre 
display is on loan from the Mu- 
seum of the City of New York. 

"Two Penny Colored, One 
Penny Plain," the title of Lunt's 
collection of miniature stages, in- 
cludes scenes from "Uncle Tom's 
Cabin," "Oliver Twist," "Robin- 



One of our most commonly 
used words was originally a 
made-up nonsense syllable! The 
story goes that a man named 
Daly, manager of a Dublin play- 
house, bet a friend that within 
24 hours he could have the 
whole town talking about a 
meaningless word. He won the 
wager — by chalking all over 
Dublin's walls the letters QUI 
Z. 

Some words are literally nick- 
names for other, longer words. 
In this category is the sports 
"fan" (short for fanatic) ... the 
tough "cuss" (for customer) . . . 
the old "chap" (for chapman, an 
ancient English word for mer- 
chant) and the "mob," an ab- 
revlation of the Latin phrase 
"mobile vulgus," fickle crowd. 

"Nincompoop" is a telescoped 
version of the Latin "no.: com- 
•os mentis, mentally lncompe- 
it. 

"It's amazing how pictur- 
esque some ordinary words turn 
cut to be, upon investigation.

the Lctin "prae," before, and 
"osterus," behind. "Calculate" is 
rom the Latin "calculi," little 
p '.Voles used by the Romans to 
cast their votes — and reckon up 
their gambling debts. "Cliche" is 
Frer fa for a stereotype plate in 
prlntir.,j; "conjugal" means 
what r:uny husbands may have 
sunspee'ed— "yoked together." 
On the other hand, what stu- 
dent would connect "grammar" 
with "glamor?" Yet word ex- 
perts know that both derive 

from an old Scottish word for 
"magic spell"— centuries ago, 
"grammar" conveyed the idea 
of mysterious lore. 
Would you ever guess that 



son Crusoe," "Jack and the 
Beanstalk" and "Sleeping Beau- 
ty." 

The name of the Lunt exhibit 
dates from the first days of the 
juvenile theatre in England, 
when reproductions of action- 
heavy scenes from plays were 
reproduced and sold — the colored 
sheets for tuppence, the black- 
and-white for one penny. 

Lunt has improved on the ori- 
ginators of the idea by present- 
ing scenes in all three dimen- 
sions. 

The stages of his toy theatres 
are complete miniatures of thea- 
tre scenes — painted, lighted, and 



furnished with actors and props. 

Although Alfred Lunt Is best 
known as an actor, he started 
his career in the theatre as a 
producer and scene designer. 

When he and his wife, Lynn 
Fontaine, were acting in London 
during the World War II blitz, 
Lunt, in his spare time, hunted 
up the antique toy theatres, 
then spent a great deal of time 
refurbishing and arranging them. 

According to theatre authori- 
ties, the exhibit of little thea- 
tres is "immediately amusing 
and permanently valuable," " a 
lively commentary on theatrical 
history." 



Soph-Frosh Picnic Success 




The Sophomore Class assisted 
by the Scrolls and Maroon Keys 
"wished the freshmen well" at 
the annual Soph-Frosh picnic, 
held Saturday on the S.U. lawn. 
Freshman and sophomores were 
treated with soft drinks and hot 

"idiot," in the original Greek, 
simply meant "a man who holds 
no public office?" Or that "kid- 
ding," in its early 19th century 
meaning, was "to amuse or di- 
vert your victim while your ac- 
complice robbed him?" Or, for 
that matter, that "robe" and 
"rob" are related words— the 
idea being that a robber be- 
decked himself in the spoils 
stolen from his victim! 

Another pair of verbal rela- 
tives is "shrew" and "shrewd" 
(formerly spelled "shrewed"). 
"Crummy" or "crumby" a scant 
hundred years ago was a term 
of high praise— it meant good, 
handsome, buxom. "Buxom," in- 
cidentally, has also changed its 
meaning drastically— it used to 
mean "obedient," "pliable" (in 
its old form the word was 
"bough-some," i. e., bending like 
a bough of a tree.) 

Some words, however, are al- 
ways stable. People have been 
Joking about "elbow-grease" 
since 1672, talking about "the 
gift of gab" even longer. ("Gab" 
Is a very old Gaelic word for 
mouth.) And it has always been 
safe to call the boss, the boss- 
ever since we borrowed the 
word from the Dutch "baas."

Redmen Shutout . . . 

(Continued from page 8) 
the Bucknell 28. A half dozen 
plays later Lewis vaulted into 
the endzone but an offside penal- 
ty cost UM the TD. 

On the next play Whelchel 
tossed a seven yard pass to Bob 
Meers all alone in the endzone. 
Once again Whelchel booted the 
extra point. 

Besides Lewis* nullified score 
the Redmen had two other TD's 
called back for penalties. A clip- 
ping violation cancelled out a 
dazzling 64 yard touchdown run 
by Jerry Whelchel. A holding 
penalty cost Phil deRose a score 
late in the fourth period. 

TD'» Cost 

In three games UMass has had 
five touchdowns called back for 
various rules infractions. 

Bucknell's running game Sat- 
urday showed why the Bisons 
rely mainly on the forward pass 
to eat up most of the yardage. 
Redmen defenders held Bucknell 
to only 44 yards on the ground. 
And Bucknell had some of the 
fire taken out of its passing 
game. UM pass defenders al- 
lowed quarterbacks Rodgers and 
John Lerro only 11 completions 
in 28 passes thrown, far below 
the Bison average. 

Fred Lewis led all ball car- 
riers Saturday with 84 yards on 
six carries. Big Mike Ross was 
the Redmen workhorse all after- 
noon, grinding out 73 yards with 
14 attempts. Ross picked up sev- 
eral key first downs to keep the 
UM scoring drives rolling. 
Whelchel Complete* 7 

Jerry Whelchel enjoyed a fine 
all-around afternoon. He com- 
pleted seven of 11 passes for 89 
yards and one TD. Jerry also ran 
for 71 yards in 12 tries in addi-

tion to the 64 yards TD run that 
was called back. 

The Bisons' lending rusher 
was John Barron who gained 21 
yds. in eight attempts. In the 
passing department Rodgers 
threw 17, completed seven for 77 
yds and had three intercepted. 
John Lerro was four for 11 for 
61 yards. 

The win over Bucknell was the 
second win of the season for 
UMass. The Redmen have tied 
one and have lost none. 

Bucknell's loss was their sec- 
ond against one win. 

Only One TD 

UMass defenses have been 
stingy with giving up touchdowns 
so far this season. In 12 periods 
of play Maine has scored the 
only TD allowed by the Redmen. 

Bucknell's two losses this year 
have come at the hands of New 
England teams. Last week the 
Bisons were edged out, 20-18, at 
Dartmouth. 

Redmen center Bernie Dallas 
appears to have joined the 
UMass starting unit for keeps. 
The spirited sophomore made 
several unassisted key stops on 
Bucknell runners and teamed up 
on several others. Dallas also had 
one interception that paved the 
way to UMass' first score. 

For the second week in a row 
the UMass defensive linemen 
proved that it's impossible to go 
through them once you're inside 
the five yard line. 

Huskies Next We*k 

Next week finds the Redmen 
on the road again. This time the 
UConn Huskies roll out the wel- 
come mat in a Yankee Confer- 
ence match at Storrs. Last year 
UM pinned a 16-6 loss on the 
UConns at Alumni Field. 



"At last, Twin Cleaners of Northampton is on 
campus/' Tom said neatly. 

"Now I can get my raincoat done, using their 
wonderful three-day service/' Tom said 
trenchantly. 

"First quality dry cleaning and shirt finishing 
done at STUDENT rates/' said Tom pen- 
uriously. 

" In my dorm now!" you'll say joyfully. 



Brouillet Sets Record 
Harriers Lose Tri Meet 



by GKNE ( OLBIK.N 
DESPITE A RECORD break- 
ing effort by Bob Brouillet, the 
varsity cross country was upset 
for its first loss of the year by 
the aroused Northeastern and 
Maine teams in Boston on Satur- 
day. This marks the first time in 
the last four years that the Red- 
men have lost this traditional 
trl-meet. Northeastern won with 
a score of 34, Maine followed 
with 41, and UMass had 48. 

The only bright spot for 
UMass was Brouillet's great per- 
formance. Prior to the race it 
was felt that Dave Dunsky, con- 
sidered one of the best runners 
in the area, would give "Digger" 
a good race. The only time the 
two boys were close was at the 
start. By the two mile mark the 
only question was how much 
Brouillet would w.'n by. When 
Digger crossed the finish line the 



judges didn't believe their watch- 
es. Bob had covered the 4.1 mile 
course in a time of 19.02, thor- 
oughly wiping out the former 
record of 19:38. Dunsky was a 
far distant second with a time 
of 19:52. 

OUTSIDE OF BROUILLETTii 
performance, the Redmen did not 
have a very good day. As had 
been feared, the spread in time 
between the runners was the 
cause of their defeat. Junior Bob 
Ramsey was second for UMass 
with a ninth improving on his 
last year's time by 45 seconds. 
Sophomore Bob Molvar and Gene 
Colburn followed close behind 
Ramsey. Al McPhail, Tom Parke, 
and Bob Larson rounded out the 
top finishers for the Redmen. 

Although the team was very 
disappointed on losing the har- 
riers now realize just how disas- 
trous the time between runners

in from the right in vain as did 
Mike Zawrotny. With another 
corner by Dillman in the offing 
the half ended at 2-0 Williams, 

KEVIN LYONS OPENED the 
third quarter with a shot which 
threw the Williams goalie in the 
air as he made an excellent save. 
Play roughed with warnings be- 
ing given to three Purple players 
which led to the ejection of two 
in the third period. Redmen Pal- 
litano, Leete, and McDavitt com- 
bined to keep the pressure on 
though the booters only had five 
shots on the Williams net in the 
quarter. 

The combination of Upton and 
Dillman from the fourth quarter 
though they did not score thanks 
to the quick recovery of loose 
balls by the Redmen defense. 
Centerhalf Ron Merrill collided 
with a Purple back and a fight 
started which caused both play- 
ers to be ejected. The Williams 
captain was then ejected for 
rough play as the Redmen of- 
fense ran out of energy and time 
unable to break the 2-0 Williams 
shutout. 

THE BOOTERS FACE a Trin- 
ity College team out for revenge 
Wednesday at Trinity. Saturday 
will be the Briggsmen first Yan- 
Con game as they face the boot- 
ers of UConn at Storrs.

Redmen Shutout Bisons 21-0 



Linemen Star As UMass 
Handcuffs Bison Offense 



by STEVE HEWEY 

. The University of Massachu- 
setts finally took the wraps off 
its offensive game and rolled 
over visiting Bucknell Univer- 
sity, 21-0, at Alumni Field Sat- 
urday afternoon. Some 8100 sun- 
burned fans saw an explosive 
UM back field reel off scoring 
drives of 80, 34 and 80 yards 
while the opposition was held 
scoreless for the second game in 
a row. 

The contest, billed as a pass- 
ing duel between UM's Jerry 
Whelchel and Bucknell's Don 
Rodgers, was actually won on 
the ground as the Redmen tore 
up the turf to the tune of 286 
yards. 

The biggest crowd-pleaser of 
the afternoon turned out to be 
UM halfback Freddy Lewis who 
displayed some of the old form 
that made him a menace as a 
sophomore. 

UMass got its first scoring 
march underway in the first pe- 
riod. Jerry Whelchel deflected a 
Don Rodgers pass into the hands 
of UM center Bernie Dallas at 
the UMass 13 and Dallas carried 
to the 20. Fifteen plays and 80 
yards later fullback Mike Ross 
bulled his way forward from 
three yards out for the score. 
Whelchel kicked the extra point 
and the Redmen led 7-0. 

Another Goal Line Stand 

Bucknell's only real threat of 
the afternoon came in the clos- 
ing minutes of the second period. 
Bison fullback Joe Elliot re- 
covered a Bob Ellis fumble on 
the Mass 37 and Bucknell 
pressed forward to the UM 6 and 
a first down. Halfback Bob Lang- 
ton carried to the five where he 
was stopped by Dallas. Langhton 
carried again, to the one. Half- 
back John Barron took two 
cracks at the Redmen line and 
was stopped cold twice by Dick 
Warren, Bernie Dallas and Bob 
Meers. 

A Bucknell punt set the stage 
for Freddy Lewis and UM touch- 
down number two. Deep in his 
own territory Bucknell halfback 
Mike Connell punted to the 
Bucknell 34. On first down Whel- 



chel plowed forward for five 
yards. Fullback Mike Ross 
slanted off the right side to the 
24 and a first down. 

Freddy Lewis was trapped for 
a yard loss on the first down 
carry but on the next play there 
was no stopping him. On second 
down from the 25 Lewis swung 
right, cut through the Bison line 
and streaked untouched into the 
endzone for the third period 
score. Whelchel split the uprights 
for point number 14. 

Lewis Sparks Drive 

It was Lewis once again that 
who sparked UMass during the 
nine play 80 jaunt to touchdown 
number three. On third down 
and three from the Mass 23 
Whelchel carried to the 30 and 
at the last second flipped a 
lateral to Lewis who galloped to

SUPERLATIVE DEFENSE was shown Saturday by the Redmen line as demonstrated by Ken Palm, 
Bob Burke, Bob Tedoldl and friends. Bucknell made little gain In this set of plays as UMass stalled 
them In their own end of the field.

TIDDLYERS WANTED 

There is a meeting this eve- 
ning of the Western Massachu- 
setts Tiddlywink Association in 
the Worcester Room of the Stu- 
dent Union. All interested in the 
game of tiddlywinks are urged 
to attend. 

The WMTA urges that the five 
or six other Tiddlywink teams 
on campus send representatives 
to this meeting so that an at- 
tempt can be made to coordinate 
the Tiddly teams on this campus, 
with the eventual purpose of 
intra- and intercollegiate compe- 
tition. 



A DETERMINED UMASS 
VARSITY SOCCER team was 
unable to overcome a well 
drilled, experienced Williams 
College team, losing 2-0 in a 
game which saw one fight and 
three men being thrown out of 
the game. 

Controlling the ball from the 
opening kick Williams using its 
halfback line to control play, 
was able to score after 5 min- 
utes of play on a boot by out- 
side left Dave Wilson. Redman 
Tom Astaldi, aided by the ex- 
cellent ball control of Pat Mc- 
Devitt, was able to break in for 
a shot only to have it go wide 
to the left. UMass goalie Dick 
Phillips, succeeding in breaking 
up attacks by his saves, aided the 
offense by his half-field boots. 
Wilson again went in alone with 
a clear net only to have an off- 
side called on him. 

As the second quarter opened 
it seemed as if the Redmen were 

about to seize the play. Center 
forward Dick Leete drove down 
the middle only to have the Pur- 
ple goalie make a diving save. 
The Williams booters took three 
rapid shots on the UMass net 
which goalie Phillips knocked 
down. All American Dick Repeta 
cleared two balls in front of the 
net which Goalie Phillips was un- 
able to hold onto. A cornerkick 
by Purple outside Dillman set up 
a head by his centerforward Up- 
ton which accounted for the sec- 
ond and last Williams goal. With

Mystery Gas Brings Fire, 
Police To Goessmann 2d Floor 



by DEIDRE HALEY 

In a dedication speech here 
Saturday morning, Charles H. 
Foster, Commissioner of the 
Massachusetts Department of 
Natural Resources, viewed the 
University's new Natural Re- 
source Center as a "spring-board 
for what might become the finest 
resource program in the coun- 
try." 

Addressing a crowd of nearly 
200 in Holdsworth Hall, the new 
Department of Forestry and 
Wildlife Management named 
after Professor Emeritus Robert 
P. Holdsworth, the Commissioner 
stated: 

"Peabody's recent act has es- 
tablished in the Department of 
Natural Resources a State Con- 
servation Committee. This group 
serves the soil conservation dis- 
tricts located throughout Mas- 
sachusetts." 

These districts, the Commis- 
sioner stated, have in the past 
worked mainly with farmlands, 
but in more recent years have 
been asked to serve towns. He 
pointed out that the co-ordina- 
tion of these rural and urban ef- 
forts has been a legislative move 

Economist To 
Begin Series 
Of Lectures 

On October 11, at 4 p.m. in the 
Student Union Council Cham- 
bers, the History Department 
and the School of Business 
Administration will sponsor a 
lecture by Professor Joseph P. 
McKenna on "The Future of the 
Common Market." 

Professor McKenna, noted 
scholar on European economic 
and political integration, re- 
ceived his B.S. (1946) and Ph.D. 
(1951) at Harvard. He taught at 
the University of Minnesota and 
at Saint Louis University before 
becoming Professor of Econo- 
mics at Boston College in 1961.

that has gained nationwide at- 
tention. 

Mr. Foster pointed out the 
panorama of resources available 
in the valley and surroundings. 
The total land area of woodland 
in Massachusetts, he stated, is 
heavier than in either Washing- 
ton or Oregon. Also, he added, 
the cultural location of the build- 
ing will help it to realize its 
goals, the most important being 
the co-ordination of rural and ur- 
ban efforts in resources pro- 
grams. 

The Commissioner was intro- 
duced by John W. Lederle, Pres- 
ident of the University. The pro- 
gram began with an invocation 
by Reverend Jere S. Berger, Pro- 
testant Chaplain. 

(Continued on page f>) 



Police, fire officials and Dean 
I. Moyer Hunsberger were baffled 
Monday night by a strange gas 
which filtered through a second 
floor corridor in Goessmann Lab. 

The gas, generated from a 
broken flask being stored in a 
large refrigerated vault, was dis- 
covered by Prof. George Ober- 
lander who called campus Fire 
Marshal Edmund Goetzl, who im- 
mediately notified police and the 
Amherst Fire Department. 

Responding to the alarm was 
an Amherst pumper under com- 
mand of Capt. Alfred Tidlund. 
Upon arrival at the lab, Tidlund 
and Louis Carpino, who was 
working in the building at the 
time, entered the vault and re- 
moved the chemical. 

High velocity fans were used 
by the fire department to ventil- 
ate the corridors.

Friday to present her a birthday 
cake. President Lederle, Dean 
Field, and Dean Curtis have al- 
ready sent cards, and the com- 
mittee asks that any students 
interested in sending a card to 
Sandy do so at the Children's 
Hospital. 

Other developments in the 
drive to make Sandy's recupera- 
tion easier have been the adop- 
tion of the committee's cause by 
the pledge class of Alpha Phi

Precisionettes And Band 
Still Without Solution 



FRESHMEN SEMINARS 

Now is the time for fresh- 
man to sign up for discussion 
groups in the Guidance and 
counseling office E12 Mach- 
mcr. The groups are filling 
fast. It will be an opportunity 
that no other freshman class 
has been able to experience. 
Class of '67, you are very 
lucky. Don't miss out. 



by ELWIN McNAMARA 

A definite decision as to the 
future of the Precisionettes is in 
the offing as the result of a con- 
frontation between the drill 
team's squad leaders and the 
staff of the marching band. 

Senate President Jon Fife 
stated that while no definite de- 
cision was reached, "an atmos- 
phere of co-operation" exists be- 
tween the two groups. However, 
further meetings will be neces- 
sary. 

Last night's meeting was the 
product of a rift between the 
groups which has grown since 
the beginning of the semester. 

The dispute began with the 
fall semester, at which time the 
drillmaster and squad leaders 
learned that there was to be a 
great change in the band, and in 
the relation of their organiza- 
tion to the band. 

They discovered that UMass 
was to eventually have a "Big 
Ten" type band - a high stepping, 
all male marching band. To ex- 



pedite this, the administration 
had hired John Jenkins, who was 
recognized as a rising person in 
the field. 

This struck many of the group 
to believe that this new policy 
was to prove the death knell of 
the Precisionettes. They saw a 
gradual falling into disuse and 
eventual abandonment of the 
group by the bands. 

The Harvard game saw the 
rift break into the open. The 
Precisionettes, dis-satisfleld with 
their part in the half-time cere- 
monies, disbanded after an emo- 
tion-packed meeting. Thus the 
dispute, which had been under- 
ground, broke into the open with 
a crash. 

Five days after the disband- 
ment, the whole University was 
made starkly aware of the rift. 
For the first time in years the 
pre-game rally and the halftime 
show were conducted without the 
Precisionettes. For the Ant time 
In years, the "long straight line'

There was once a group of conscientious people who 
wanted to keep their country-side beautiful. It occurred to 
them as they rode through the hills and old farm lands, that 
something really should be done about the terrible slum 
problem presented by those weedy gardens and broken- 
down farm buildings. The smell was abominable- The houses 
were old beyond use; not to mention the terrible health 
dangers presented by those pollen-ridden fields! And where 
could the children play? Certainly not in the fields! Every- 
one knows the sin that children could find in the high grass. 
Thus, these good souls began a vigorous Rural Renewal 
campaign, tearing down the old buildings, lawning-over 
gardens, cutting down the high grass. Surely the few farm- 
ers that were reluctant to leave their homes were simply too 
stubborn for progress. At last, the entire country side 
boasted a bevy of shady parks and beautiful buildings. And 
when the Rural Renewal was complete the people settled 
back to enjoy the fruits of their labor, and eventually 
starved to death ! 

United Nations Week-The Purpose 

The following is a reprint from the Unesco Office at 
Place de Fontenoy, Paris. 

"Guillermo Giacosa is a student in the provincial city 
of Rosario Argentian ... He has organized a local chapter 
of the International Student Movement for the United Na- 
tions. Guillermo and his friends have devoted most of their 
energies to organizing short workcamps in the barrio mis- 
eria, the poverty stricken slum quarter, of Rosario. Guiller- 
mo and his friends want to work in inland rural areas 
where education is lacking and hopeless degradation is 
widespread. 

To meet the needs of such students, regional workcamp 
leader training projects in newly developing countries are 
being organized. This is the kind of training that Guiller- 
mo's group — and other promising young men and women all 
over Latin America need and want." 

This is the kind of training they want, this is the kind of train- 
ing they can receive through aid of students in other areas of the 
world such as the University. United Nations Week which hegins 
with the concert by Buffy Saint Marie this Sunday night October 13 
hopes to answer in part the needs of these students. Where dicta- 
torships tend to spring into bloom so rapidly feeding on the fertil- 
iser of economic discontent it is the work of those such as Giacosa 
which will run counter to that dictatorship. 

This is the ultimate purpose and final hope of Unued 
Nations Week. You can help it succeed.

Ed. Note: This letter ,l The Good Life" 
was found on the Editorial Editor's desk re- 
cently. Though it is anonymous the Colle- 
gian fett that it was pertinent to the campus 
and therefore needed to be published. 

Living at the University of Massachu- 
setts has changed my ideas about many 
things. When I first came to this school I 
thought that 1 knew just what I wanted but, 
after living here for a while, I am not sure 
that I know what I want. 

When I see the boys that I am supposed 
to consider men, I can't help wondering when 
they are going to mature. These "men" are 
usually found at fraternity parties with a 
cigarette dangling from their mouths, while 
they hold a drink in one hand and a girl in 
the other. This shows that the boys are not 
always to blame. The girls at the University 
of Massachusetts often are the cause of many 
of the boys acting as they do. The girls are 
willing to date anyone who asks them even 
if the boy doesn't ask them out until Satur- 
day night at eight. Not only do the girls ac- 
cept dates at the last minute, (they do this 
because it's considered a crime to sit home 
on a Saturday night ) but also the girls, once 
they are out with these boys, act as if they 
had been dating the boy for years. Very of- 
ten in the living rooms of the girls' dorms 
there are such passionate scenes that it 
makes me wonder how long some of these 
couples have been "married." 

Some of these mature college men actu- 
ally invite girls to parties and expect the 
girls to wear anything from pajamas for a 
pajama party to a toga, formerly a sheet, 
for a Roman orgy. I have no respect for a 



girl who leaves her dorm with her pajamas 
on and goes to a fraternity which was built 
on one level so as to avoid the rule that girls 
aren't allowed above the first floor of a fra- 
ternity house. When the girls come home 
from these parties they are usually sick be- 
cause they have had too much to drink. The 
innocent girl, when she goes to her first fra- 
ternity party, often finds her date offering 
her fruit punch which ends up having more 
of a punch than she expected. 

The question raised at the Mortar Board 
Dormitory Discussion with the freshman 
class summarizes the way some of the girls 
at the University feel. The question asked 
in all sincerity was, "Where can we find 
some nice boys?" The members of Mortar 
Board were unable to answer this question. 
There are, of course, some boys who are de- 
cent, but most of them don't like to admit 
that they don't believe in the things that take 
place at college. 

In the few weeks that I have attended 
the University of Massachusetts I have de- 
cided to postpone my goals. I still want to 
teach, to marry and to have children, but I 
am no longer in a hurry to do these thing3. 

Before coming to college I assumed that 
after I received my degree I would want to 
get married- Now I feel that I have a lot of 
growing up to do and so do the boys. I want 
to wait before I rush into the world. College 
is only the first of many experiences. There 
are many wonderful things waiting in my 
future when I will be prepared to meet them, 
but for the present I want only to be edu- 
cated so that I will be able to meet my fu- 
ture when it challenges me.

To the Editor: 

WMUA's Sunday night 
program "Interaction" is the 
most significant advance in 
bettering student and ad- 
ministration understanding 
in a long time. Now it is 
possible to bring controver- 
sial issues out in the open 
and hear members of the ad- 
ministration publicly defend 
such policies as those on 
parking and student hous- 
ing. I am surprised that they 
allow the callers to remain 
anonymous since the calls 
are on the air live. 

If WMUA is able to main- 
tain the cooperation of the 
administration in getting 
such guests as Dean Field to 
answer to the students via a 
radio broadcast of a tele- 
phone conversation then 
maybe there can be some 
understanding on both side3 
about the main campus prob- 
lems. For example — com- 
mons food, almost non-exis- 
tent parking space, and ov- 
ercrowded housing condi- 
tions have been a few of the 
topics handled so far. The 
Student Senate has been rep- 
resented on this program 
and I suggest that Collegian 
add its support to this pro- 
gram To those people who 
write to the editor column 
there is no satisfaction so 
great as to hear a member 
of our esteemed administra- 
tion answer student gripe3

To the Editor: 

I would like to take this occasion to thank the 280 commuters 
who took time to vote in last Thursday's Scnatd' election. I wonder 
if they realize that their efforts resulted in nearly eight times the 
total of last year's vote? Their interest in the campaigning of the 
candidates yes folks, there was campaigning was extremely high. 
For the first time, the commuting student body was invited to hear 
their eleven candidates deliver their platforms, thanks to the Com- 
muters' Club. For the first time, there was a real contest — eleven 
candidates for six seats. In contrast, last year three people ran for 
four seats. 

Apparently, commuters are finally waking up to the fact that 
they too are a part of the University. Perhaps they are also waking 
up to the fact that they pay more than $18,000.00 to the SATF and 
want to know where it goes. In any event, the commuter residential 
area can no longer be looked to as an "easy ticket into\he Senate.

Curfew Inadequate 



Sex Education Suggested 



i 



The Vernacular 



This is the first of a series of 
articles dealing with matters 
pertaining to and about sex at 
the college level. It is an analy- 
sis of the stand taken by the 
administration, as far as it is 
made known to the student, and 
of the attitude of the average 
college student, both male and 
female. 

Recognizing the fact that the 
University has never openly ex- 
pressed its opinion with regard 
to the problem that sex creates 
on the college campus or even 
acknowledged that such a prob- 
lem does exist, we can only in- 
fer from the sundry allusions to 
the relationship of male to fe- 
male (and vice versa) exactly 
what the attitude of the Uni- 
versity is. 

The "rules and regulations" 

pertaining to the behavior of co- 
eds, i. e., the use of the sign-out 
sheet, the penalty for lateness 
and the ruling on visiting under- 
graduate and graduate males' 
apartments and dormitory liv- 
ing quarters, are designed for 
one basic purpose: to keep 
UMass girls "out of trouble." 
But are these rules effective 

Dateline Chicago 



and can they be (or are they) 
adequately enforced? The an- 
swer to both these questions is 
obvious. What can be done after 
curfew can easily be done be 
fore, and, certainly, there are 
many ways in which these 
"rules" can be avoided. 

Our University, however, is 
not unique in this ostrich atti- 
tude; it is prevalent in almost 
every college and university in 
the country. Besides their pri- 
mary purpose, education, col- 
leges cannot escape responsibil- 
ity for the emotional and physi- 
cal life of the students on cam- 
pus. Since it is known that a 
certain number of students will 
have premarital sexual rela- 
tions despite official disapprov- 
al, the colleges should try to 
make sure that all students 
know how to avoid the most 
serious conequences. 

Certainly the colleges could 
help students understand better 
the psychological, social and 
moral implications of sexual 
maturity. To do this effectively, 
however, they should take into 
account the sexual activity that 
exists on campuses today and 



try to match their policies to 
deal with it as realistically as 
possible. 

Granting that this problem 
does exist, an effort should be 
made to Insure that such Infor- 
mation Is made available to all 
the students, be It in the form 
of a lecture series, a required 
course, .or .group discussion*. 
Th's information is necessary 
not only for the female members 
of our population but also for 
the males. 

Every generation, of course, 
has had tr» deal with the prob- 
lem of illegitimate pregnancies 
among young people, some on 
the college level. But is was 
aptly stated by The Springfield 
Student, "Two factors make the 
current crop (of collecre stu- 
dents) different: 1) premarital 
sex in all its forms is much 
more widespread and openly 
discussed among students; and 
2) in the midst of this apparent 
sophistication, at a time when 
highly reliable methods of birth 
control exist, the majority of 
students are nearly as ignorant 
of the facts as the poorest illit- 
erate Indian peasants." 



NAACP Stresses Job Equality 



Once again the National Asso- 
ciation for the Advancement of 
Colored People has met at a 
convention in Chicago to discuss 
the civil rights issue. Essential- 
ly the first meeting on civil 
rights since the recent racial 
upheavals, the convention con- 
centrated on Negro labor prob- 
lems, political action and school 
integration throughout the 
country. 

The difference between medi- 
an incomes of Negro and white 
wage earners and the continu- 
ing high unemployment rate 
among Negro workers was dis- 
cussed by the NAACP. They are 
seeking to end this difference 
through picketing and demon- 
stration and to secure Tair em- 
ployment for the Negro. There 
will be an aim to "intensify the 
national program to eliminate 
the broad pattern of discrimin- 
ation and segregation within the 
American labor movement." 

According to a statement is- 
sued by President Kennedy, it 
will become illegal for compa- 
nies under government contract 
or using government funds, to 
practice discrimination in em- 



ployment, even if their union 
membership demands it. If dis- 
crimination takes place, the 
President's Committee on Equal 
Employment Opportunity has 
the authority to halt construc- 
tion. The Negro workers will be 
assisted in organizing demon- 
strations before union offices 
which continue to refuse the Ne- 
gro his right to work in a de 
segregated area. 

Appropriate complaints will 
be filed with state and munici- 
pal fair employment commis- 
sions and appropriate federal 
agencies whenever unions either 
refuse to negotiate with NAACP 
representatives or Negro work- 
ers, or when such negotiations 
prove fruitless. 

In Gary, Indiana, schools 
have been attended on a segre- 
gated basis according to neigh 
borhood, and teachers have 
been hired on the basis of race. 
The NAACP has moved, in a 
petition beore the U. S. Supreme 
Court of Appeals for the Sev- 
enth Circuit, to eliminate this 
discrimination on the basis of 
the U. S. supreme court decision 
in Brown w* B^ard of Education

It's cold and windy 
up there... and the

thin? Also 




that educational opportunities 
cannot be secured in a case 
where there is a segregated 
school system. This applies 
even In a case where discrimin- 
ation is "a result of educational 
policies and procedures that 
necessarily produce separate Ne- 
gro and white schools." 

The Negro continues to fight 
for his right to equal recogni- 
tion by demanding reform in 
school textbooks and teaching 
which will recognize the Negro 
role in the history of America. 

Further arguments have tak- 
en place in the fields of medi- 
cine and dentistry against racial 
discrimination practices. 

Throughout the country, ac- 
cording to resolutions made at 
the NAACP convention, picket- 
ing, sit-ins, mass action pro- 
tests, selective buying cam- 
paigns and all appropriate con- 
stitutional means of attacking 
discrimination and segregation 
in public accommodations, hous- 
ing, education, employment and 
political practices, will continue. 

During the summer there has 
been action in the countiy fo- 
cusing directly against "Jim 
Crow Institutions." 

In Clarksburg. Mississippi, 
for example, there has been pick- 
eting against the local ftOVtnv 
ment, press, churches, circuit 
court clerk's office, where ap- 
plicants register for voting, and 
the public library The NAACP 
hopes that action of this type 
will eventually result in the 
more complete protection and 
Integration of the Negro.

Were you on the tribal census 
of American Cherokees in 1907? 
It seems the federal government 
bought a piece of land from the 
Cherokees in 1880 and did not 
pay a fair price for it. The gov- 
ernment is now making addi- 
tional payments, that total $12 
million, to 12,392 living Chero- 
kees who were in the tribal cen- 
sus of 1907. Payments to heirs 
of 30,000 deceased tribal mem- 
bers are also included.

Beauty scientists in Spring- 
field, Mass., are busy in their lab- 
oratories trying to discover what 
happens to a girl's curls when 
she's caught in the rain. You 
wonder why they don't just ask 
some UMass girls who have to 
"swim" from the Wope building 
to Bartlett during these fall 
showers. But, you know scientists 
don't want just any answer, they 
want an empirical answer. How 
do the scientists at John H. 
Breck, Inc. get this empirical an- 
swer? Locks of hair are position- 
ed in a horizontal wheel and then 
twirled at 1,400 revolutions per 
minute. This produces, in empiri- 
cal language, the "centrifugal 
G ratio" of waving preparations. 
(That's why they say, always 
read the directions on the out- 
side of the package before you 
buy it.)

"Sing Along With the Dust." 
A new record album? No, but it 
might become a possibility be- 
cause a team of scientists in Chi- 
cago have developed an instru- 
ment which lets them listen to 
dust. The instrument was devel- 



oped to detect air-borne dust by 
its accoustical effect. Can't you 
just see the possibilities this cre- 
ates for Madison Avenue adver- 
tising For the smart set, parti- 
cle-repellent tweeds; for the 
campus clod, sweatshirts with 
the greatest dust capacity. May- 
be you can think of some others.

A small note for fad-seeking 
college girls, and men. The Mad-

has not yet been disclosed.

Did your grandmother ever 
tell you that baking soda makes 
beans more digestible? Well, put 
aside the baking soda and read 
this. The Stanford Research In- 
stitute has developed a quick- 
cooking process with a "gas-re- 
ducing efect on beans," it was re- 
ported in the "Idaho Bean 
News.' Idaho Bean Commission- 
er, Harold West, noted, "Beans 
are not used in hospitals, nurs- 
ing homes, old age homes, and 
other institutions, or in baby 
foods," because of their gas-pro- 
ducing effect. Thanks to the 
Stanford developed process, 
grandmothers baked bean may 
gain still more popularity.

Campus Mail Service 



By Harold A. Gushre Jr. '65 

There is a free mail service 
on campus for use by the Ad- 
ministration, Departmental offi- 
ces, and R.S.O. groups. This serv- 
ice, under the direction of Mr. 
Frederick K. Utley, is in the ex- 
perimental stage. 

Mail is picked up thrice daily 
from the Administration build- 
ings, South College, and Mach- 
mer; twice daily from all other 
offices and classrooms; and once 
daily from dormitories. The ma- 
jority of the mail consists of no- 
tices to students. The mail is de- 
livered to the Girls' Quad, in the 
morning and to the rest of the 
campus in the afternoon. The 
Lincoln Apts. are served by the 
U. S. Postal Service. 

The on-campus service is used 
primarily by departments and 

WMUA ...

publicly and to be able to 
immediately debate the ques- 
tions. 

It will be interesting; to see 
such persons as the Dean of 
Women and perhaps Presi- 
dent Lederle take their turn 
answering WMUA's tele- 
phone on "Interaction." 

A Commuter looking 
for a parking space 



Mr. Utley says, "We can't handle 
the mail under the present sys- 
tem if all the R.S.O. organiza- 
tions use this service." He would 
appreciate any groups planning 
to use the service to contact him 
in Draper Hall as the service is 
on a tight schedule and arrange- 
ments may have to be made to 
cope with the greater volume of 
mail. Students can't use the serv- 
ice now and it may be discon- 
tinued next semester. 

However, Mr. Utley says, 
"There are tentative plans to ex- 
pand to a certain extent." An 
inserter, which prepares material 
for mailing, now located in 
South College, 'will eventually 
be located in a central mail 
area. Automation is a definite 
factor in determining how far we 
can go in this service." If auto- 
mation is kept up the service 
may be m*de available ro stu- 
dents. 

In conclusion Mr. Utley said. 
"At the present time our staff 
and facilities do not allow us to 
increase the service to all organ- 
izations. Perhaps in the future 
with automated facilities and a 
larger staff and if the adminis* 
tration so desires we might be 
able to serve the individual stu- 
dent."

Written in its entirety by 
Meredith Willson — book, lyrics, 
and music -The Music Man ran 
in New York for 1,376 perfor- 
mances to place it among the top 
ten musical hits of American 
stage history. 

The show introduces its au- 
diences to its setting of a small 
town in 1912 with the famous 
number. "Rock Island." It has 
no musical accompaniment, and 
not really any singing, only a 
pulse-raising chant. As the over- 
ture ends, the audience hears a 
steam locomotive's whistle, its 
chuggety-chug, and the lights go 
up to reveal a group of traveling 
salesmen being jiggled as they 
sit in an old-fashioned day-coach 
of a train. To a clackety-clack 
rhythm of a train they toss one 
another an antiphony of shop- 
talk phrases like "Ya gotta 
know the territory," rendering 
not only the sound of a train 
but also the atmosphere of the 
period, creating what has been 
declared the most delightful and 
unusual beginning of any musi- 
cal comedy. 

Other notable song-hits of The 
Music Man include the "Profes- 
sor's" warning about the town's 



new pool table. He says, "Ya 
Got Trouble— with a capital T— 
that rhymes with P — that stands 
for POOL!" Also there is the 
charming "Piano Lesson," in 
which the heroine (Peggy Jones) 
teaches a simple tune to a child; 
Marian's ballad of loneliness, 
"Goodnight My Someone"; her 
lyrical portrait of "My White 
Knight"; and the song her little 
kid brother with a lisp sings, 
"Gary, Indiani." 

More favorites are "Till There 
was You," a ballad; the comic 
song "Pickalittle," and "Shipoo- 
pi," a song-and-dance shindig in 
the high-school gymnasium. Vy- 
ing in popularity with "Seventy- 
Six Trombones" is the show's 
"Marian the Librarian," in which 
the mischievous "professor," 
admonished to silence in the 
library, where he has come to 
woo the heroine, leads a mock- 
ing tip-toe, sh-sh dance through 
the book-stacks. 

Wayne Lamb, musical and 
stage director, is also choreo- 
grapher for The Music Man. He 
is assisted by Paul Bartsch, 
Ernest Bilodeau, and Herb 
Mongue. 



Junior Class Rings 
Go On Sale Thursday 



Starting Thursday, October 9, 
from 9 to 4, a representative will 
be in the University Book Store 
to take orders from all Juniors 
for their class rings. This year's 
Junior Class will deal with the 
firm that has been handling the 
University's rings for the past 
five years and has proved to be 
reliable. Herff Jones, the .name 
of the firm, has said that It takes 
approximately six to ten weeks 
for the orders to be filled, so the 
earlier the rings are ordered the 
earlier they will be received. 

The prices for the Class of 
1964 were as follows:

has announced plans for a pro- 
ject in which all members of the 
campus community are asked to 
participate. Beginning Thursday 
and running through Friday, 
committee members will be in 
the Student Union lobby with a 



bed sheet upon which they hope 
the majority of students and 
others on campus will affix their 
signatures in indelible ink. Mem- 
l>ers of the committee will also 
bring the sheet to the lobbies of 
the various dorms, beginning 
Monday, according to a schedule 
to be published in Friday's Col-

Holdsworth ... 

(Continued from page 1) 

Arless A Spielman, Dean of 
the College of Agriculture, gave 
a brief talk on the purpose of 
landgrant colleges. He pointed 
out that these colleges have a 
new goal: helping people apply 
knowledge to new problems. 
Specifically, he stated, there is 
the challenge of resource devel- 
opment and its use in a rapidly 
urbanizing society. The key pur- 
pose of the landgrant college, he 
ended, is knowledge for use. 

Following the main address, a 
tribute to Robert P. Holdsworth 
was given by Arnpld D. Rhodes. 
Head of the Department of 
Forestry and Wildlife Manage- 
ment. 

In his response, Professor 
Holdsworth pointed out the 
personal satisfaction he received 
from the study of expanding re- 
sources to public availability. He 
said, "It gives a sense of dedica- 
tion to one's fellow man." 

A congratulatory message 
from Governor Peabody was 
read. The Governor pointed out 
that lands were no longer rural 
or urban; resource efforts must 
apply to all lands. 

JohryrtV Haigis, member of the 
Univeraify* Board of Trustees, 
presented a portrait of Profes- 
sor Holdsworth. The painting 
was done in oils'^y his son, "Wil- 
liam Curtis Holdsworth. a pro- 
fessional artist in New Ifork 
City. After, Mr. Haigis formally 
dedicated the building. Refresh- 
ments and a tour of the building 
followed.

Anniversary * 



University Theatre Brings 
"The Twin Menaechmi" 



The Wesley Foundations in 
America will celebrate its Fifti- 
eth Anniversary at the Wesley 
Methodist Church on Sunday 
evening, October 13. One of the 
first religious student organiza- 
tions in the country to serve 
state and private campuses, the 
Wesley Foundation began on the 
University of Illinois campus on 
October 13, 1913. 

The speaker for the occasion 
will be Dr. Robert Hamill, Dean 
of the Chapel at Boston Univer- 
sity. Dr. Hamill is in constant 
demand as lecturer. He has de- 
livered the Willson lectures at 
Southern Methodist University 
and speaks annually at . Sage 
Chapel, Cornell University. He is 
the author of two books, "Gods 
of the Campus" and "How Free 
are You?", and numerous maga- 
zine articles. 

The campus community is in- 
vited to attend Dr. Hamills lec- 
ture which will be held in the 
sanctuary of the Wesley Metho- 
dist Church at 6 p.m., October 
13.

Starting this year students at- 
tending the summer session will 
be participating in the year 
round operation of the school. 

It is the aim of the adminis- 
tration to make the summer term 
equal, in both course offerings 
and credit hours, to the other 
two terms. 

With the new summer session 
of twelve weeks, the student can 
take within three credits of a 
full semester's work. 

It is both an easy step and the 
next step to be taken to turn this 
year round operation into tri- 
semester. 

The Ad-Hoc committee has 
listed the following as induce- 
ments for the thrid term of year 
round operation: 

1. The curriculum for the sum- 
mer of third term is carefully 
planned as an academic unit. 

2. Remedial work may be of- 
fered in the third term only. 

3. Full year courses can be 
scheduled in the third term. 

4. Special programs are run

The "Twin Menaechmi" story 
deals with twin brothers who 
have been raised separately. 
They are mistaken for each 
other when one arrives in the 
town where his brother, stolen 
in infanthood, has been raised. 

The play moves at a fast pace 
until the final scene, when the 
two brothers recognize each 
other. Along the way, many mis- 
understandings and Roman-style 
slapstick events provide the 
comedy. 

Cosmo Catalano, a member of 
the speech department faculty at 
UMass, is directing "The Twin 
Menaechmi." Other speech de- 
partment faculty members in- 
volved in the production are Uni- 
versity Theatre Director Orville 
K. Larson, designer: Harry E. 
Mahnken, production coordina- 
tor; Terry H. Wells, technical 
director. 

Students are working on all 
phases of the production as well 
as acting in the comedy. 

Lawrence J. Wilker, a junior 
from Newton, and James M. 
Wrynn, a senior from Lynn, play 
the parts of tje two Menaechmi. 
Paula Norton of Brookline and 
Deena Ferrigno of Amherst have 
leading female roles.

THE MASSACHUSETTS COLLEGIAN. WEDNESDAY. OCTOBER 9, 1968 



Vandals Invade Gorman House 



UMass students David Blau, 
'66. and Robert Singer, '67, have 
some cleaning up to do today. 

Monday night, at approximate- 
ly 7:30, vandals entered room 
131 Gorman House by ripping 
the screens out and forcing open 
a window, and proceeded to tear 
the room apart. There seemed to 
be some method in the destruc- 
tion as Mrs. Eugenia L. Hale, 
housemother, suggested that the 
way the room was torn apart the 
vandals were apparently looking 



for money or other valuables. 

When Blau and Singer re- 
turned at 11:30 from the library, 
they were greeted by a room 
that looked like it had housed 
Hurricane Flora for the night. 
Clothes from the dressers were 
dumped on the floor and the 
drawers were thrown around. 
Clothes in the closet were also 
tossed on the floor. The stripped 
beds had been pushed around the 
triple room, and the mattresses 
were on the floor.

THE MASSACHUSETTS COLLEGIA?*, WEDNESDAY. OCTOBER 9, 1963 



Redmen Team Has Intramural Sports 
Improved Backfield 



by JOHN GOODRICH '6A 

"Offensive football is turning 
into a science today. No longer 
is the straight -T enough. It just 
isn't possible to play a pound 'em 
out game," said backfield coach 
Jack Delaney in a recent inter- 
view. "Today's teams use split 
ends, winged-T and double wing 
formations, counters, and other 
variations." 

The 1963 Redmen backfield has 
many of the qualities inherent to 
outstanding backflelds. They pos- 
sess speed and power in the 
forms of Mike Ross and Fred 
Lewis. Phil DeRose has good 
speed, while Ken Palm shows a 
good deal of power. Dick War- 
ren and Bob Ellis are both fine 
all around players. Even an aver- 
age backfield will have players 
that fit the above mentioned 
abilities, but there is still one in- 
tangible that is needed, and that 
is of course desire. Coach De- 
laney feels that these players 
have that quality. He said, "I've 
been coaching for eleven years, 
but the finest players I've ever 
seen are right here at the Uni- 
versity. They a great deal of de- 
sire to learn and improve. We 
never have had a disciplinary 
problem with these men." 

Coach Delaney has developed 
a fine backfield this year. While 
the team has scored the un- 
spectacular total of 35 points so 
far this year, one cannot omit 
the fact that the team has had 
five touchdowns called back. 
"Many teams, UConn for one, 
hasn't even scored five touch- 
downs this year," the coach 
added. 

So far this year, the shining 
light in this backfield has been 
the quarterback Jerry Whelchel. 
The modern QB has to be able 



to think on his feet. He has the 
pre-game plan to carry out as 
well as calling some audibles, 
plays called at the line of scrim- 
mage, and being alert to any de- 
fensive adjustments. "While we 
are trying to find a play that 
will offset the adjustment the 
defense has made, Jerry is on his 
own," said Coach Delaney. 

While the coach is quick to 
compliment his players and give 
them the credit, it is well to note 
the job that he has done with 
only one veteran. Whelchel was 
the only returnee from last year's 
squad. Both Lewis and Palm 
were out of school, so they did 
not play at all last year. Ross 
was only a substitute on that 
squad. The second team has John 
Schroeder at the QB position, 
DeRose is one halfback, the only 
halfback with experience from 
the previous year; soph Bob El- 
lis is the other, and Dick War- 
ren is the fullback. 

In this year's game against 
Harvard, it appeared to many 
fans that the Redmen played ex- 
tremely conservatively. Such was 
not the case; the fact is that on 
every roll-out by Whelchel he 
has the option to run or pass, 
both of which he does well. If it 
appears conservative to the fan, 
it was only that the pressure 
from the Harvard line forced the 
QB to rush, and Jerry Whelchel 
is not the type to throw unless 
there is somebody open to re- 
ceive. He would rather "eat the 
ball". So if the roll-outs were 
taken into account, Mass might 
have thrown 16 passes rather 
than only the six that were 
thrown. 

The last two games Mass has 
made spirited goal line stands. 
Coach Delaney is proud to note 



(Continued from page 8) 
energies of the students. This 
outlet could be found in intra- 
murals. 

A 45 team facility in the Cage 
makes it possible to carry out a 
successful program. This allows 
for the fifteen fraternity teams 
and eighteen dormitory squads 
as well as some independent 
teams. 

Touch football, basketball, 
bowling and volley ball are some 
of the most popular activities 
available to the student body, 
but others include Softball, lac- 
rosse, tennis, badminton and 
many more. The number of 
sports played depends, entirely 
upon the student interest and 
participation in intramurals. 



To increase this student inter- 
est, an elaborate point system 
has been set up. This system is 
distinctly separate from the IFC 
system and applies to all teams 
playing in intramurals, whether 
they be dorm, fraternity or in- 
dependent Coach Cobb has also 
perfected a system ensuring that 
each team eventually plays all 
other teams in their respective 
sports. 

TROPHY AWARDED 

One of the main stimuli to the 
participation in intramurals is 
the hope of obtaining the coveted 
Stephen Davis Trophy. Victories 
in the various sports would earn 
points throughout the year. At 
the end of the year whichever 
dorm, fraternity or independent 



Freshmen Harriers In 
Four Way Meet Friday 



by JOHN POTASKY 

This Friday afternoon at 2 
p.m., the freshman cross country 
team will play host to Providence 
College, UConn, and Boston Uni- 
versity in a quadrangular meet. 
Coach Justin Cobb's runners will 
be trying to recover from an up- 
set defeat in the years opening 
meet with the Coast Guard Aca- 
demy. This loss was the first for 

that the defensive backfield made 
many of the tackles in those 
crucial series of downs. Ellis in 
the Harvard game and Warren 
in the Bucknell game led the 
charge. 

On the whole Coach Delaney 
is proud of the progress of the 
1963 Redmen backfield both of- 
fensively and defensively, and 
well the fans might also take 
pride in the results of the back- 
field and the entire team to date.

the frosh harriers over a span of 
three years. 

A mixup in scheduling resulted 
in no meet this past Saturday 
for UMass. The Maine and 
Northeastern squads were not 
able to participate, so the Mass 
frosh had a brief holiday. 

Coach Cobb is looking forward 
to this week's meet with concern. 
He realizes that his boys will be 
running against some of the 
toughest competition in New 
England. Mr. Cobb is once again 
hoping for fine efforts from his 
two leading runners, Bob St. 
Clair and Charles Mitchel. These 
two boys finished first and third 
respectively in the Coast Guard 
meet. 

On the whole, the frosh should 
make a strong try at first place 
this Friday. The boys have re- 
sponded well to training and are 
just about ready to make a 
strong bid to go undefeated for 
the remainder of the season.

/earn had garnered the most 
points would be awarded this 
plaque. Thus the total number 
of points and not merely the 
possession of a few first places, 
is the deciding factor in the 
winning of the prize. The Davis 
trophy is a beautiful one, and a 
proud addition to the trophy 
room of any dorm or fraternity. 

The fraternities have always 
been strong In intramurals, and, 
although In recent year* the 
dorms have been making , rapid 
progress, there Is still much room 
for Improvement. 

It's up to the student to pro- 
vide for his own health, enjoy- 
ment and honor, and there is no 
better channel of obtaining all 
of these than the University's 
Intramural program. 

Intramural 
Football 

INTRAMURAL AND IFC 
FOOTBALL are in full action 
under the lights of the lower 
football field. The third week of 
play saw two dorm league and 
four IFC games. 

Gorman House overpowered 
Hills North 24-0 as Mills House 
blanked Berkshire 15-0. In the 
I.F.C. league the brothers of 
PMD rolled over ATG 32-6. T.C. 
shaded T.K.E. in a well played, 
rough game which hung in the 
balance until the last seconds 
ending 13-12. S.P.E. shutout 
Q.T.V. 6-0. The brothers of 
A.E.Pi led by the running and 
passing of John Parnell downed 
B.K.P. 20-12. The play of Larry 
Kalevitch, Paul Feinberg, and 
Mike Tesler aided the Pi's in 
their win. 

NEXT WEEK play continues 
toward the all important Intra- 
mural and I.F.C. crowns, campus 
championship, and the Nose Bon.

Redmen In Quadrangle Meet Friday 
Face Providence, UConn, and B.U. 



Gene Colburn '64 

The varsity cross country will 
have its first home meet of the 
season this Friday when it is 
host to Providence College, the 
University of Connecticut, and 
Boston University. The meet is 
scheduled to start at 3 P.M. on 
the field between the Women's 
Phys. Ed. building and the girl's 
tennis courts. 

The Redmen will be looking to 
get back into the win column af- 
ter having been upset last Sat- 
urday by Northeastern and 
Maine. The team's record cur- 
rently stands at 1-1. Bob Brouil- 
let has a perfect record. Not only 
has he won both meets for 
UMass, but he has also set 



course records each time. "Dig- 
gers" performance Saturday 
marks him as one of the top run- 
ners in the East. He'll not only 
be a threat to win the New Eng- 
land Championships, but also the 
IC.4A's, which is symbolic of 
Eastern supremacy. Brouillet is 
the first runner in UMass his- 
tory to have as good a chance as 
he does of placing among the 
top finishers in the IC.4A's. If he 
does well there, Digger could 
well go to the national cham- 
pionships. 

It takes more than one man to 
make a team though, and it's the 
six men behind Brouillet who 
will decide whether the Redmen 
will win or lose. Coach Foot rick 
is optimistic. He feels that the 



team learned a lesson Saturday 
and that they should be able to 
triumph Friday by closing the 
time gap between the runners. 
If the boys run as well Friday as 
they have been running in prac- 
tice this week, they should win. 

Providence has a strong team 
and has given such powerhouses 
as Army and Harvard a strong 
run for their money. B.U. and 
UConn are not likely to have 
strong teams, but each will have 
several outstanding runners who 
could well act as spoilers. Fri- 
day wiU present Digger with a 
chance to break an unprecedent- 
ed third straight record, and the 
varsity will be given a chance to 
prove it is as good as it is sup- 
posed to be. 




Women's Field Hockey Match 
Hampshire vs. South Africa 



CROSS COl NTRY RINNERS. The view IMass' opponents get 
of our harriers. The team is often seen practicing on the campus. 

Intramural Program 
Develops Team Spirit 



Thursday, October 10. at 4 
p.m. a women's field hockey 
match will be held between a 
South African team and the 
Hampshire Field Hockey Associ- 
ation. The match will take place 
on the fields at the Women's 
Physical Education Building. 

The South African team has 
been selected from the best of 
its provincial players. This selec- 
tion occurs annually at the cul- 
mination of the field hockey sea- 
son which lasts about five 
months in South Africa. It cor- 
[ responds to our spring season. 

The Hampshire team is repre- 
sented by the best players of the 
Hampshire Association, one of 



thirty-two active associations in 
the United States. Two Univer- 
sity of Massachusetts graduates 
are included on this team: Dotty 
Bemis, who was president of the 
WAA and an outstanding ath- 
lete; and Peg Bagdon, who ma- 
jored in physical education, grad- 
uated in June, and is now teach- 
ing in the South Hadley school 
system. 

Field hockey is a game which 
has the same formations as soc- 
cer and the same modus operan- 
di. One point is scored for each 
goal and the out of bounds rules 
are essentially the same as in 
soccer. Unlike soccer, however, 
the game is played with a small 



white ball which may not touch 
the body, and a one-sided stick. 
Playing time is two thirty min- 
ute periods with no time outs 
and no substitution allowed. The 
game is not rough, but it is quite 
strenuous. 

This is the last of a series of 
three matches held in this area. 
The first, on Tuesday, pitted 
Wales against Mount Holyoke, 
and the second saw Wales play- 
ing South Africa at Smith Col- 
lege. 

Following the game at UMass 
there will be a reception for the 
visitors and a dinner in the Stu- 
dent Union sponsored by the 
physical education majors.

THE COCA-COLA BOTTLING CO. OF NORTHAMPTON 



With much talk on the UMass 
campus these days about intra- 
murals, the Collegian is reprint- 
ing this article which was pub- 
lished last year and which we 
feel explains the workings and 
ideals of the Intramural Pro- 
gram. 

The purpose of this program 
is to provide a broad pattern of 
organized recreational activities 
to attract the leisure time pur- 
suits of the student body. 

It is hoped that at least 50 
percent of the male student body 
will take advantage of the facili- 
ties available to them. As Provost 
Gilbert Woodside puts it: "In- 
tellectual work is the most im- 
portant activity in a college stu- 
dent's life . . . But I know that 
the vast majority of people simp- 
ly cannot engage in intellectual 
activity all of the time. The hu- 
man body is not geared to do 
this. A student who tries it will 
be endangering his health. 
Therefore we urge the student 
body to take part in the intra- 
mural program of the Univer- 
sity." 

To meet this need, the pro- 
gram of intramurals has been 
expanded for the benefit of all 
students who wish to participate. 

Intramural competition is de- 
signed especially to fulfill the de- 
Mire for athletic participation 
among the large group of stu- 
dents who because of skill level, 
or Inclination do not wish to 
compete on a varsity level. The 
Intramural program Is a supple- 
ment to, and a continuation of 
the general physical education 
program. Provision is made for 
the inclusion of all members of 
the I'niversity community In the 
programming of events. 

The Intramural Department is 
administered by the Director of 
Intramurals, a supervisor repre- 
senting each class, an IFC Ath- 
letic Chairman, Dormitory repre- 
sentatives (chosen by the Dean 
of Men), and the Intramural Edi- 
tor of the Collegian. 

The council shall Interpret and 



enforce the rules and regulations, 
make additions and changes 
when necessary, rule on protests, 
develop a system of appropriate 
awards and in general advise the 
director. 

Extramural Events 

In addition to the regular 
schedule of men's Intramural ac- 
tivities the campus champion in 
Touch Football and the campus 
champion in Basketball represent 
the I'niversity of Massachusetts 
in an annual game with the res- 
pective campus champions of the 
I'niversity of New Hampshire. 

The inclusion of faculty mem- 
bers on teams and in tourna- 
ments is encouraged. Faculty 
groups may compete in the In- 
dependent Leagues and when 
possible will be scheduled to com- 
pete against other faculty 
groups. 

The Department of Intramur- 
als is always in need of qualified 
officials. Students who are inter- 
ested should apply directly to the 
Intramural Office. Those who are 
selected receive $1.00 per hour 
for their services. 

According to Coach Cobb, due 
to the efforts of the IFC and be- 
cause of the sense of purpose 
that pervades fraternity life, 
there always is a fine host of 
fraternity teams in intramurals. 

But this esprit de corps should 
also apply to dormitories. Dorms 
can and should have a purpose 
and a unity similar to that of the 
fraternities. Because of the rela- 
tively small percentage of male 
students in fraternities (about 
85%) the key to the enjoyment 
of life on campus Is the develop- 
ment of an esprit de corps in the 
dorms. 

Identity with the dorms, be- 
lieves Coach Cobb, an identity 
somewhat similar to that between 
a fraternity and its members, is 
the key to disciplinary problems 
on campus. The denial of certain 
varied activities to students and 
the pressure upon students to 
behave requires an outlet for the

Curtis Requests Protestors Leave 



Senate Membership Enlarged 
To Cope With Big Problems 

by DON JOHNSON 

By virtue of Senate approval of bill number S10, a motion for 
acceptance of the recent election results, Senate membership swelled 
to fifty-four last night, making this Senate the largest legislative 
body in UMass history, and a tacit implication, the one having to 
deal with the greatest problems. After a brief congratulatory speech 
by Senate President Jon Fife, the Senate was called to order and 
the regular meeting began in earnest. 

The first order of business 
brought an abrupt end to the 
lightness that had been prevalent 
throughout the chamber. It was 
a motion to repeal the act which 
stipulates that each meeting of 
the Student Senate be opened 
with a brief prayer, offered by a 
Senator designated by the Stu- 
dent Senate President. Before 
the pros and cons had time to 
congregate on their respective 
sides of the fence, Senator James 
Watson (At Large 65) raised 
his voice in objection to con- 
sideration of the question, which 
is. in fact, an objection to having 
the motion recognized on the 
floor. A vote was taken on Sena- 
tor Watson's objection, which 
requires a two thirds majority. 
but this was defeated. Senator 
Dave Mathieson (At Large '64 1 
then moved that the Senate 
table the motion. This was 
passed and the bill was tabled 
lor one week, when it will again 
come up for consideration. 

THE FIRE WAS HARDLY out 
when President Jon Fife read 
the names of those Senators he 
had chosen to chairman the 
various committees; now, the 
President of the Senate has 
within his power the right to 
appoint, or to remove, the chair- 
men of all committees except 
Finance; that is, to appoint or 
lemove with the advise and con- 
sent of the Senate: Immediately 
after the reading of the names, 
there WM an objection to the 
chairman of the Activities Com- 
mittee; an objection strong 
enough to warrant Senator 
Marilyn 'Sam" Singer < Johnson i 
to remind the Senate that. ". . .

Capt. Keliher 
'64 Advisor 

by JANET CHAKLES 

Last evening the Senior Class 
Executive Committee was hon- 
ored to have as a speaker their 
new Senior Class Advisor, Cap- 
tain John Keliher of the R.O.T.C. 
As Captain Keliher stated, toe 
does not have any specific plans 
as yet, but he definitely does 
have some feelings about the roll 
of the Senior Class here at 
UMass.: "I think that the Senior 
Class has a responsibility toward 
the student body as a whole — 
that of leadership. It should set 
a good example for the under- 
classmen and it should give its 
aid and support to the many ac- 
tivities here on campus." 

Captain Keliher also feels that 
as a genera! rule, the graduating 
class has a tendency to lax off 
and to become "apathetic toward 
campus activities." It is his de- 
sire that the Class of 1964 will 
not follow this pattern, but rath- 
er that they will continue to do 
their best at all times. 

One point of interest concern- 
ing his attitude toward the Sen- 
ior Class is Captain Keliher's be- 
lief that more recognition should 
be given to the class as a whole, 
not just individually. Despite the 
enormous size of UMass. and the 
increasing rate of enrollment of 
students, Captain Keliher still 
thinks that special attention 
should be focused on these sen- 
iors, and that they should be sin- 
gled out for their respective 
achievements, including the very 
fact that they are seniors!

Two Protesting Apartheid 
Quit Field Hockey Match 

by ELWIN McNAMARA 

Two students protesting the policy of South Africa 
were "requested to leave" yesterday's women's field hockey 
game by Dean of Women Helen Curtis and Ruth Totman 
of the Women's Physical Education Dept. The game was 
between a team from South Africa and a local club. 
Abdul Samma, former stu- 



dent senator and head of the 
International Club, was dis- 
tributing leaflets protesting 
South Africa's apartheid 
policy when he was ap- 
porached by Dean Curtis 
and told "not to do that 
here." He was then asked to 
leave the field by Miss Tot- 
man. 

Samma stated that he was 
"surprised at the harsh words of 
Miss Totman." The former sena- 
tor told the Collegian that, "if 
in this great democratic country, 
I cannot express my feelings, 
freely, what kind of impression 
can I carry back home. 

"I came 8000 miles to witness 
democracy in action, in this 
great country. To me this was 
the saddest moment of my stay 
here, for the two administration 
officials to tell me not to distri- 
bute these leaflets." 

Collegian reporter Don John- 
son, a veteran of the civil rights 
struggle in the South was also 
approached, and asked to leave. 
Miss Totman told Johnsori that 
distributing the leaflets would 
"cause trouble." Johnson added 
after that while Miss Totman 
said that it would cause trouble, 
she never stated how his would 
happen. 

The leaflets were a reprint 
of a letter sent to President 
Lederle reading. 

Our attention has been drawn 
to the itnjx ndmg game scheduled 
on the inth of October, 19<ii 
betueen the Hampshire Field 
Hot A. u Association and a team 
from the Republ ic of South 
Africa on the University play- 
ground. Tiro Univirsity of Mas- 
sat ■hnsi tts graduates are in-

MacNair Gives 
Hillel Lecture 

by STEVE LEVINE 

Last Tuesday evening at 8 
o'clock, the Hillel Lecture Series 
featured its second speaker, 
Luther Knight MacNair. Mac- 
Nair, who for the past 14 years 
has served as executive secre- 
tary of the Massachusetts Civil 
Liberties Union, lectured on "The 
State of Civil Liberties Today." 

At the opening of the discus- 
sion, MacNair described the nat- 
ure and purpose of his organiza- 
tion and of the parent body, the 
American Civil Liberties Union. 
Both groups, operating on the 
theory that the Constitution 
must defend everyone or it de- 
fends no one, work to prevent 
any abridgement of any freedom 
granted by the Bill of Rights. In- 
cidental to this work has been 
the defense of many individuals 
and organizations, some of which 
have been unpopular. 

The demand of the organiza- 
tion is that Constitutional law 
be observed for all persons, no 
matter what their character or 
offenses might be. 

MacNair discussed several 
laws thrt he feels are danger- 
ous to civil liberties. Among such 
laws is the McCarren Act of 
1950 which authorizes the Jus- 
tice Department in time of 
emergency, to detain without 
trial anyone suspected of being 
subversive. He cited liberties in 
the nation's history. 

At present, we are in a cru- 
cial period as regards civil lil>er- 
ties. The McCarthy period 
brought about a strong reaction 
on the part of rights groups. In 
the Negro Civil Rights drive, wo 
are able to witness for the first 
time a great progressive force in 
action. The outcome of this 
struggle may provide the key to 
the future of American demo- 
cracy.

Understanding 

PROTEST 

by GEORGE M. MASSEDAM 

Civil Rights has become an individual ques- 
tion with which each American must con- 
front himself. No longer is it an abstract 
ideal mentioned in our constitution. No long- 
er is it merely a Lockian maxim reflected 
in our Declaration of Independence. It is a 
question every individual must decide to live 
and coordinate in his every day life— or not 
to coordinate. 

Yesterday afternoon at the invitation of 
the University, , the South African Field 
Hockey Team played the Hampshire Field 
Hockey Association. A mimeographed let- 
ter to President Lederle, drawn up by a 
group of African and American students 
was being distributed as a pamphlet to the 
spectators of the game The letter protested 
the invitation of the South African team 
and their use of University facilities, since 
they represent a government whose policy 
is that of apartheid. We understand the sen- 
sitivity of these students to the hateful pol- 
icy of apartheid and we identify with them. 

Dean Curtis, who was watching the game, 
approached the distributor, Abdul Samma, 
a foreign student prominent in student*, af- 
fairs at {he University, ,ahd expressed her 
feelings, that she would hope that he would 
not continue to distribute these letters. She 
felt it was appropriate to have letters such 
as these drawn up/ sent to President Lederle, 
and distributed fo Various sources. However, 
she thought s th is letter might cause unpleas : 
antn^s% for the women hpcitey players from 
South Africa. Miss Totman, Head of the De- 
partment of -Women's Physical Education 
also asked an American student if he might 
stop distributing. Let it bp said 'that we are 
conscious of the strong non-discriminatory 
policy Dean Curtis has set up ,in woman's 
housing; and that we are very proud to have 
it here at the University. As individuals 
Dean Curtis and Miss Totman had the right 
to ask these students to stop. And the stu- 
dents couid have continued to distribute 
these letters. They didn't. 

The central issue involved here is truly 
basic to the academic community. For here 
academic liberty and freedom of expression 
are the foundation of all scholarly pursuits 
and educational philosophy. These students 
were utilizing their freedom of expression. 
Their protest did not lie with these women 
playing hockey. Rather their protest was di- 
rected at the government this team repre- 
sented. As long as the protesters acted 
gentlemanly and sincerely they should con- 
tinue in their protest. For them to stop for 
the sake of social appeasement is violating 
the roots on which our institution is founded. 
Some of the African students are too acutely 
aware of the apartheid policy of South Afri- 
ca (as we all should be) to let this situation 
occur without comment. Although we under- 
-stand Hie concern of Dean Curtis and Miss 
Totman for the social unpleasantry that 
could have occurred for these hockey players 
from South Africa, we are also committed to 
the fact thai sentiments concerning unequal 
relations between races must be voiced. Es- 
pecially in the case of a country such as 
South Africa. 

Dean Curtis and Miss Totman, as indiv- 
iduals, have the right to ask the protesters 
to stop. But as voices of the administration, 
their presence and feelings carries great in- 
fluence Influence over the protesters as 
members of the administration, not as in- 
dividuals. 

The freedom of expression is a treasured 
value. Let us hope that foreign students, 
American students, faculty, and adminis- 
trators will never underestimate its impor- 
tance in our way of life at the University, 
America, the world. 




Editorial 

Harvesting Our Over-Production Physotmous Phthariasis 




__ 



Obj&tivityVV 



by RAY WOODIS 

President Kennedy's announcement of his decision to allow the 
sale of U.S. wheat to Russia and Communist nations of Eastern 
Europe came as no great surprise. The obvious economic advan- 
tages to this country overshadow the fears of opponents that by such 
sales we are indirectly contributing to the fulfillment of the Soviet 
claim, "We will bury you!" 

The United States Is at present holding 900 million bushels of 
surplu* wheat, purchased from U.S. farmers at price support levels. 
At the world market price for wheat of 91.80 per bushel, $250 mil- 
lion worth of sales would eliminate one-flfth of the standing supply. 
The cost of storing this perishable monument to agricultural effic- 
iency wUl be reduced, and that portion of the tax dollar diverted to 
more constructive endeavors. 

U.S. dollars or gold will be demanded in the transactions all oi 
which will be carried out through private agencies. Payment will be 
on "cash on delivery" basis or arranged "under normal commercial 
terms." The government ' will replenish dealers' supplies by sales 
from surplus stocks. The balance of trade deficit and drain on U.S. 
dollars will be reduced. Additional income for U.S. citizens will be 
realized by transporting the commodities on American ships. 

As the President stated. It would Indeed be foolish to prohibit 
direct nales of U.S. wheat. Frtnedly nations can buy our wheat, con- 
vert it Into flour and resell It to Communist nations, thus reaping the 
profits of onr over-abundance far themselves. 

The sales are not unconditional. Shipments of wheat are ex- 
pressly for use In Russia and the satellite nations of Csechoslsvskia, 
Hungary and Bulgaria. Resale to Cuba and Communist China have 
boe« definitely ruled out. U.S. response to appeals for food from 
other countries has always been accompanied by requirements that 
the foodstuffs, go where Intended and that the recipient be aware 
jpf .the origin of the product. Russia has agreed to meet these condi- 
tions. The appearance of U.S. wheat in Communist countries should 
prove to be an effective testimonial to agricultural production and 
technology under a system of free enterprise. 

The United States has not entered into any new trade policies 

with the , Soviet Union and the wheat deals do not reflect many 

changes or softening in our attitude toward Russia. The decision 

to sell ,U$.' wheat to Russia was made solely on economic considera- 

' (ions, .advantageous- to this nation, not on political contemplations. 

SENATE 

To the Editor: 

With regard to last night's Senate meeting it is quite apparent 
that there is a misunderstanding on the part of many Senators with 
regard to my objection to President Fife's appointment of the Chair- 
manship of Activities Committee. 

»I In no way meant to slander or despoil the character of this 
appointment. 

J My main purpose was to, object to this appointment as being, 
in my opinion, unqualified on the basis that I put forth last night. In 
this respect, I do not regret what I did or what I said. I am sorry, 
however, that my words carried a meaning that was never intended. 

Under the prevailing conditions of that moment, having received 
no co-operation from other members in the Senate that might well 
have prevented such an incident, I felt it incumbent upon me to 
speak my mind. I believed I was right then— I went ahead. I still 
believe I'm right. 

To my knowledge, this has never been done on the floor of the 
Senate in the past. Yet, the very fact that such an objection was 
raised on the floor leads me to believe there is some substance be- 
hind it. I am not at all alone in my belief. 

It is unfortunate that most of the new Senators are unfamiliar 
with this appointment for they are not in a good position to form a 
fair, objective decision as to the qualifications or to the objections 
that were presented. 

My only purpose was to do what I believed was right; to dj 
what I believed was in the best interests of the Senate and the Stu- 
dent Body as a whole. Whether I am right or wrong is another point 
entirely. 

I honestly hope I have clarified the situation and my intentions. 

Sincerely, 

Phil Howard '64

Let's pretend I'm a new student senator .... 

My first meeting was last Wednesday night. I was sworn in by 
a ceremony which was so brief, I hardly had time to raise my right 
hand. But any doubts I might have had as to the sobriety of the or- 
ganization were quickly dispelled. Mutual respect and obvious reserve 
are apparently demanded of veteran senators, and for the most part, 
they seem equal to that demand. 

One thing comes across loud and clear, ion Fife, the Senate 
President. Is In control While he may lose s battle now and then. 
It was evident that the 8enate Is looking to him for leadership, and 
he means to supply It. While he spoke from the chair, expressing his 
views freely, throughout the evening, s cardinal psrilmentsry sin, 
hot a protest was heard from the body. It would appear they value

Miscegenation 

by SAM OORVINE 
I PLEDGE ALLEGIANCE TO THE FLAG 
OF THE I'NITED STATES OF AMERICA 
AND TO THE REPUBLIC FOR WHICH IT 

STANDS. 
ONE NATION, INDIVISIBLE, WITH LIBERTY 
AND Jl'STICE FOR ALL WHITE PEOPLE. 

Now that we have finished the customary salute 
to the flag and prayer to the Great White Father, 
let us open the discussion on a subject very dear to 
our hearts: Resolved: Thai White People are great 
and We ought to keep the Race pure. 

Am I attacking the big bad south whom all good 
northerners hate for breaking the "law of the land" 
and causing so much trouble? No. I am talking to 
you, yankee protestant jew catholic immigrant 
northern white man! If any one asks, you are ail 
for Civil Rights and Governor Wallace is a fool to 
oppose the power of the Federal Government. But 
what do you really think, liberal or conservative, 
or whatever you choose to call yourself, when you 
see a Negro with a white girl or vice versa? What 
do you think if your daughter comes home one day 
with a black man and said, "I want you to meet 
a good friend of mine, Daddy." 

I don't have to write what you think. You know 
what you think. But do you know why you think 
so? No^ not that stuff about social mores. People 
have to feel a crtain way about something before 
it becomes a more and then a law. 

When your daughter bring* home a Negro (if 
you are so fortunate to have a daughter with that 
much courage, or so unfortunate to have one that 
hates you that much r you are wondering if Mr. 
Jones across the street saw the/a together, because 
everyone knows that -his daughter Is engaged to a 
very promising Yale man. - ► • .*-^ 

As regards the purity of the race as-a^whole, 
everyone knows us WJ»ite Folks are responsible for 
all the great religions of the World (the only ones 
that are right, anyway),. all- the technplogy^such as 
the Atom bomb, mass production of labor saving 
devices such as electric martini-stirrers and gas 
chambers; also for economic systems such as Cap- 
italism which makes the poor poorer to help the 
rich, and Communism which makes the poor poorer 
on general principles. 

It should be clear by now that' the Caucasoid 
race is vastly superior and great oare ought to be 
exercised to prevent contamination by inferiors. 



A Thought 



by DON JOHNSON 

You are an American; you have been bred snd 
born In the land of promise, the land of plenty. You 
snd your relatives, fathers, snd brothers, hsve 
fought for this counrty. —Yes, snd In so doing 
many have died. You hsve stood by silently while 
your country has rightfully opened Its arms to wel- 
come foreigners, equally oppressed, In search of the 
freedom America promises, Indeed, is. 

You hsve a son, s baby boy. No crime In being 
a baby boy, Is there? Jesus was s baby too, once, 
wasn't he? But the truth Is, Mr. American, that 
there IS a difference between the Jesus baby snd 
your bsby. 

You ssy that your baby Is no different? Look 
again, Mr. American, look snd know thst If your 
bsby grows up to be s msn, he will suffer ss the 
Jesus baby never did. 

Look again, Mr. American, your bsby Is s Negro. 

his opinion. 

As you learned on page one, the highlights of 
the evening were the motion to substitute medita- 
tion for the opening prayer; and the storm of pro- 
test which broke over the pro tern appointment cf 
Bill Nichols to the Activities Committee chairman- 
ship. 

The Mat nelson-Howard meditation bill Is basic- 
ally a question of whether or not the Senate will 
go along with the spirits of the Supremo Court's 
decision regsrdlng public prsyer. The strong vote 
In favor of the objection to 'consideration raised 
by Senator Watson, mskes passsge seem doubtful; 
however s week's "meditation" might turn the tide. 

While Howard's blast of Nichols was much too 
severe, support of his sentiments by other senators 
made it clear that a reasonable doubt exists as to 
Nichol's ability to chair a committee. As a result, 
he has but one week to prove he intends to be a 
creative leader 4n this position. Unless he comes 
out with something positive on the Senate floor 
next week, there promises to be strong objection 
to his permanent appointment. It seems unfair to 
force Mm, alone, of the appointment*, to produce 
such rapM results; but at least it Is assured thst 
whoever chairs thst committee will, tor the rest of 
the year, be watched closely by the whole senate

piano, Paul Desmond, alto sax, 
Joe Morello, a native boy born 
in Springfield, oft drums, and

"Start Early" 
Suggests 
Safety Officer 

One of the most frightening 
experiences a driver can have, 
short of an accident, is a near 
miss. Frequently, only a fraction 
of an inch atands between a 
motorist and disaster. 

Motor vehicle laws intend to 
provide the motorist and pedes- 
trian with a comfortable margin 
of safety, thus assuring safe ar- 
rival if they are complied with. 
Campus Safety Officer Edmund 
Goetzl asks motorists to start 
early enough to arrive at their 
destination without • exceeding 
the speed limit of 30 m ph. while 
on campus. 

Motorists are also reminded of 
seven key rules to keep in mind 
while driving: 

1. Keep speed down, so that you 
have complete control of the 
vehicle at all times. 

2. Stay far enough behind the 
vehicle ahead so that you can 
stop without running intb it: 
at least one car length for 
every 10 m.p.h. 

3. Signal when you intend to 
turn or stop. 

4. Obey traffic signs and signals. 

5. Watch out for pedestrians — 
especially at crosswalks. Be 
alert for jaywalkers. 

6. Be sure the road is clear be- 
fore you pull out of a parked 
position. Be sure there is 
enough clearance before back- 
ing into a parking space. 

7. If you drink, don't drive. If 
you drive, don't drink.

Motar Boards Attend 
Conference At UNH 



The Mortar Boards particip- 
ated in a District Convention of 
the National Mortar Board So- 
ciety on Saturday., Oct. 5 at the 
U. of New Hampshire. 

The Mortar Boards who were 
in attendance from UMass were 
Pat Stankievvic*. Linda Schech- 
terle, Judy Rosenthal, Judy 
Clark. Nancy Andrade, and Bev 
Botelho. 

Five schools in the New Eng- 
land States were represented in 
th District Workshop in addi- 
tion to UMass: Cornell, UConn, 

Captain lack . . . 

(Continued from page 1) 
As Senior Class Advisor, Cap- 
tain Kefiher strongly stressed the 
point that he plans to stay in 
the background as much as pos- 
sible, and work through and with 
the class officers. He feels that 
the leadership belongs in the 
hands of the class officers and 
that he should only be involved 
in behind-the-scenes activities. 

Captain Keliher is a grad- 
uate of the University of Cali- 
fornia and he has been serving 
with the U. S. Army for seven 
years. 



UVermont. Middlebury, and 
UNH. 

Each school discussed a par- 
ticular topic, among which sub- 
jects were Mortar Board serv- 
ice, scholarship, and its future. 

At the Workshop the Mortar 
Boards shared ideas and dis- 
cussed a new aspect of service 
which will hopefully come into 
effect soon: the service of aiding 
the students in a more cultural 
and thought-provoking manner. 

Through this service, the 
Image of the Mortar Board So- 
ciety on campus would take on 
a new and fuller meaning. Such 
projects as editorials and spon- 
sored trips to cultural per- 
formances would enable the Mor- 
tar Boards to reach the Student 
Body on a more personal level.

ALPHA CHI OMEGA 

The latest word around Van 
Meter these days Is: "Alpha Chi 
is building a house." As many 
around campus have noticed, 
most of the Alpha Chi's returned 
to school this September as re- 
sidents of Van Meters Pent- 
house (5th and 6th floors), whHe 
awaiting the completion of our 
new home. Our modern con- 
temporary house, being built on 
Nutting Avenue, is to be com- 
pleted in early January. Our 
new home will house sixty sis- 
ters plus having the dining faci- 
lities for everyone. Needless to 
say. we are all a little anxious 
and quite excited. 

With initiation a few weeks 
ago, we proudly welcomed three 
new sisters: Carol Atwood, 
Diane LaFrance. and Sharon 
Merrill. 

The victory of Saturday's 
game, over Bucknell was spurred 
on by the enthusiasm of our new 
cheerleader, Mary Jane White. 

Congratulations are extended 
to our new Musigal, Linda Wil- 
lis; and our new Naiad, Sharon 
Merrill. And finally congratula- 
tions go to Deena Ferrigno who 
did a fine job in the Pan-Hellenic 
Declamation with her selection 
from Thornton Wilders "By the 
Skin of our Teeth". Thanks, Dee. 
for giving us a second place. 



LAMBDA DELTA PHI 

The sisters of Lambda Phi 
would like to officially welcome 
Mrs. Langlois as a new advisor 
to our Chapter. We appreciated 
having Mrs. Langlois and Miss 
May Alden of the Student 
Union Staff as our recent din- 
ner guests. It was most enjoy- 
able. 

We would also like to welcome 
back our cook, Mrs. Carrie 
James, after a long absence be- 
cause of illness. 

SIGMA SIGMA SIGMA 

While the Tri Sigmas were re- 
decorating their newly acquired 
house, one of the sisters, Laurie 
Niemgski, was chpsen in Boston 
to represent District I in the 
Polish National Alliance Conven- 
tion. For' three days, she re- 
mained, in Philadelphia compet- 
ing against seven other finalises. 
She came back wtih many me- 
mories of that wonderful experi- 
ence. 

Many thanks are extended to 
the brothers of Lambda Chi 
Alpha and Phi Mu Delta for 
their enjoyable exchanges. At 
these events, the sisters intro- 
duced their charming house 
mother, Mrs. Alice Drake, to the 
brothers. 

Presently the Sigma Sigma 
Sigma are busily preparing for 
the Homecoming Weekend and 
for their Chapter Inspection.

Declamation . . . 

(Continued from page V 
Skin of Our teeth. Winning 
first place Was Kappa Alpha 
Theta's Beverly Botelho with Her 
interpretation of John* Brown' ft 
Body by Stephen Vincent Benet. 
Beverly described a young girl's 
desire for a mirror as she was 
kept in a virtual prison made by 
the Civil War and the "hiders" 
seeking it. With understanding 
she described the girl's confusion 
as she came upon a starved and 
wounded Union soldier. As the 
soldier healed in her family's 
home , her mixed emotions of 
wonder and desire to experience 
the war contested with her more 
practical and real need of a mir- 
ror. 

Taking second place was Al- 
pha Chi Omega's Deena Ferrig- 
no who performed By the Skin* 
of Our Teeth by Thornton Wild- 
er. It was an amusing view of 
the perils and hardsbihps of the 
entertainment world, as well as 
a parody on the "typical" social- 
climbing American family. 

Tying for third place were 
Iota Gamma Upsilon's Frances 
Rae Castine with A Summer in 
the Country by David L. Wright 
and Sigma Kappa's Lynette Ar- 
cardi with So Ltmg, Btother by 
Edna Means. The first of these 
was amusing and moving as it 
described the death of a child- 
hood and of a love set in the 
natural beauty of the Southern 
wilds. The second was a delight- 
ful performance of the problems 
arising from a brother's leaving 
the family for the army. It is 
translated through a closed car 
window by an exuberant and 
captivating younger sister.

by EVE MARCTS 

"Each of ua believes ourselves 
to be one person — but it's not 
true . . . . " This introvertial line 
was heard Wednesday night in 
the crowded S.U. Ballroom, at 
the first Distinguished Visitors 
program of the year. The Circle 
In the Square off-Broadway the- 
atre company played the very 
arousing Pirandello play, "Six 
Characters in Search of an Au- 
thor" to an intrigued and enthu- 
siastic audience. 

The title of the play gives a 
skeletal summary of the plot. 
Act I begins as eight actors ar- 
rive casually. Finally the Direc- 
tor appears. William Young, a 
wonderfully humorous actor, 
playing a nervous and slightly 
effeminate role. He tells the audi- 
ence that "this is a rehearsal." 
The "rehearsal" becomes slap- 
stick for a few minutes. Then 
suddenly the actors stand aside, 
shocked, and six statue-like hu- 
mans, dressed in black, stand 
family-groupish, before the audi- 
ence. The Father introduces him-

self and them all as Characters, 
in search of an author. 

His Stepdaughter, Irene Baird, 
violently pushes him aside. She 
claims to have the most accurate 
and horrible story, having been 
made a prostitute by and to her 
stepfather to support her family. 
She declaims her woe with fan- 
tastic , energy and emotion 
throughout the performance. 

The Mother of the story, Eliz- 
abeth Moore, portrayed well, 
with her weakness, grief, horror, 
eternal suffering over the death 
of her lover, murder of her two 
young children, guilt in her 
daughters profession, and an- 
guished love for her psychotic 
son, played emotionally by James 
Valentine. 

These agonized characters hang 
in the midst of a horrible exis- 
tence and cannot die. The father 
says, "It's unjust that our whole 
existence is. based on one fleet- 
ing moment of eternity." The 
play becomes full with these 
philosophical double • entendres. 
between the character and the 
actors.

president . . . stop haggling and 
start working." 

New Senators looked . be- 
wildered, and old ones chose 
sides. Senator Al McNamara 
(Commuter) moved to divide the 
question, a measure that would 
have allowed the Senate to vote 
on each individual appointment; 
however, President Fife dis- 
sented, stating as his reason that, 
". . . all the appointments are 
relative to each other." This de- 
cision was appealed, and again 
refused. A vote of confidence on 
behalf of the Senate President 
was called for and approved; a 
vote of confidence on his appoint- 
ments was approved. The ap- 
pointments, all pro-tern until the 
Senate elects its officers, were 
finally realized by Executive Or- 
der of President Jon Fife. 

Under the heading of Special 
Business was consideration of 
two bills sponsored by Finance 
Committee Chairman Ross Jones 
(Brett). The bills provide a 
$350.00 appropriation toward 
purchase of furniture for the new 
Senate office and for Senate ap- 
propriation of the Budget suo- 
mitted by the U.N. Week Com- 
mittee.

The Characters finally per- 
suade the Director to be author 
for their play, their liver Thus 
the second act begins. The Ac- 
tors try to perform the scenes as 
the Characters relive them. This 
brings opportunity for philosoph- 
ical argument: "One person 
can't get into another . . . ." 

The Characters resent the Ac- 
tors' attempts at "interpreting" 
and "distorting" their story. The 
frustration of putting on this 
"illusion of reality" builds with 
rhythm and extreme tension, 

The peak of the third act t all 
terror and sorrow, and no com- 
edy, 6rings the Father to say to 
the Director, "You have no reali- 
ty at all. Your so-called reality 
turns to illusion through time! M 
The very end of the play seemed 
suddenly to falter. The usually 
comic Director, left alone on the 
stage, after the Characters have 
vanished, isn't comic anymore, 
but can't break the mood by 
talking to the audience, so his 
soliloquy of sorrow goes a little 
flat. 

The production was expertly 
directed, by Byron Ringland, the 
acting lively and on the whole 
excellent "Thanks to the aid of 
the University Theatre Guild the 
lighting was smooth and profes- 
sional. The play provided a thor- 
oughly enjoyable evening —

Freshmen Football 
To Start Play Sat. 



i ' i 



' m • » » I i 



by RALPH PROLMAN '67 

Tomorrow morning the fresh- 
man football team opens its sea- 
son against Manlius Prep. For 
the last three weeks the team 
has been practicing every other 
day in preparation for its open- 
ing contest. Freshman Coach 
Fred Glatz is hoping to upset 
Manlius for the second straight 
year. 

Coach Glatz does not believe 
that this year's freshman club 
will have as good a record as last 
year's, but is hoping to develop 
some good players for the future 
At the present time the team is 
hampered by injuries to some 
key lineman, but hopes to switch 
some players from the backfield, 
where the team is deep, to the 

line. 

So far the team has held only 
ten practices and the inexperi- 
ence is expected to show against 
their opponents who have been 
practicing every day. The reason 
for this small number of prac- 
tices is that Coach Glatz wants 
the squad to be able to keep up 

with its studies. 



Some of the players who have 
looked good in practice and may 
be heard from in the Manlius 
game are Al Carusoe, a real take 
charge quarterback and a real 
student of the game; Jim Lock- 
hart, 6'0", 225 lb. fullback with 
good speed; Rich Qualey, a 6*0" 
205 lb. end who is a good re- 
ceiver but could be better if he 
cut his playing weight; and Bob 
Santucci, a 5'11", 205 lb. guard 
who is one of the most aggres- 
sive linemen on the squad. 

Coach Glatz believes the open- 
er against Manlius will be a 
tough one, and about the season 
he said, "It looks like a long 
year." 

So this Saturdays game 
against Manlius should be a 
brutal, exciting grudge match 
with the Cadets eagerly trying 
to avenge last year's loss.

plying for freshmen basketball

Baker- 
Football 



Two years ago, Baker's Intra- 
mural Football Team won the 
campus championship; last year, 
their league championship; and 
this year, they are on their way 
to win it again. The high-spirited 
Baker Boys feel confident that 
they will promptly subdue any 
opposition placed before them. 

Their best game was their first 
shut out of the current season. 
Baker blanketed Hills North 
18-0. The offense sparked under 
the capable leadership of quar- 
terback Al Doblin. Utilizing the 
capabilities of his two ends 
Charles (Hov) Clifford and 
"Chip Wyser, the offensive unit 
scored every time they took pos- 
session of the ball. Baker's de- 
fensive unit was unsurpassable. 
Under the direction of hard 
charging "Les" Ward and the 
rugged defensive play of Ira 
Yavner, the Hills North offense 
was unable to gam more than 
one first down, being constantly 
spilled for a loSs in their own 
backfield. Offensively and defen- 
sively, Baker is the team to 
watch.

number two spot. Palm has 103 
yards in 22 tries for 4.6 a carry. 
Ross has 4.4 yards a carry with 
103 yards in 23 attempts. 

In the passing department 
Jerry Whelchel has attempted

12.7 yards a pass. 

Both UMass and UConn will 
be without their top punters to- 
morrow. UMass punter Phil Van- 
dersea, who has been averaging 
34 yards a punt, Is sporting a 
cast on his right arm. John 
Janisewski, averaging 41 yards a 
punt for the. Huskies, in addition 
to being* their top pass receiver, 
suffered a torn ligament in his 
leg against Temple and will be 
lost for the season.

THE MASSAC HI SETTS COLLEGIAN. FRIOAV, OCTOBER 11. 1963 



Redmen Meet Huskies Saturday 
UMass Is Favored To Win 



by STEVE HEWEY 

The undefeated UMass Red- 
men take to the road this week- 
end in search of win number 
three. The Redmen have won 
two while tying one this season. 
Supplying the competition to- 
morrow will be the University 
of Connecticut, winless after 
two starts. 

Tomorrows UConn - UMass 
clash scheduled for 1:30 p.m. at 
Storrs is the initial Yankee Con- 
ference test for the Huskies. 
UMass has already won its first 
Conference start, downing Maine 
in its season opener. 

UConn has gotten off to a 
shakey start this season. Yale 
pinned a 3-0 loss on the Huskies 
two weeks ago. UConn now has 
failed to beat Yale in 15 tries. 



Last Saturday Temple Univer- 
sity nosed out the Huskies 9-7. 

Husky Coach Bob Ingalls 
hopes the arrival of UMass will 
cure his woes and bring a change 
of luck. After the Temple de- 
feat some irate UConn fans hung 
Ingalls in effigy on the UConn 
campus. 

The two losses Ingalls has suf- 
fered could very easily have been 
wins. Costly errors in both the 
Temple and Yale games kept the 
UConn record from being 2-0, 
instead of the dismal 0-2 that it 
is. 

After winning 16-6 last year 
and 31-13 the year before that. 
UMass holds a 17-16 edge in the 
overall series. UM Coach Vic 
Fusia has not yet lost to Ingalls. 

The impressive 21-0 win over 



Bucknell last Saturday left Fusia 
pleased. The Redmen seem to 
have broken out of the lethargy 
that plagued their offensive 
game in their first two contests. 
The week has seen the Redmen 
concentrate on passing to give 
them a stronger offensive punch. 

The UMass defense has been 
just short of sensational in the 
three games played. Out of 
Maine, Harvard and Bucknell 
only Maine has managed to push 
across a single touchdown. 

Fusia had praise for tackles 
Paul Graham, Bob Burke, Dick 
Kehoe and Don Hagberg. "These 
four along with guards Peter 
Pietz and Bob Tedoldi and Soph 
center Bernie Dallas have been 
the keys to our strong defense,"

Varsity Booters Lose To Trinity; 
Frosh Team Defeats Stockbridge 



by SCOTT FREEDLAND 

The Varsity booters went 
down to defeat at the hands of 
Trinity College 5-3 in a game 
which saw severe injuries to 
several players on each side. 

Play on both sides was rough 
as Dick Pallatino suffered a 
fractured shoulder adding him 
to the injured list. Dick Leete 
had his best day of the season.

three goals is nothing to be

Saturday's ballgame against 
UConn at Storrs should prove 
to be a good one. With UConn 
playing a tough one against 
Bridgeport yesterday there is a 
chance that they will be tired 
for the Homecoming game. The

Card For Sandy 
Will Be Brought 

by DAVE HARACZ 

The great enthusiasm shown 
by the student body toward the 
mammoth get well card for San- 
dra Olson has prompted the 
Committee to Help Sandra Ol- 
son to extend the cards to the 
dormitories. 

This week, members of the 
committee will circulate through 
all dorms on campus soliciting 
signatures. According to the head 
of the committee, Tom Christian- 

Homecoming 
Semi-Finalists 
Selected 

From a field of 44 UMass co- 
eds nominated for the annual 
Homecomig Queen contests, 13 
were adjudged semi-finalists last 
Thursday afternoon in Memorial 
Hall. 

The Queen committee rated 
the girls on face, figure and 
poise. A tabulation of the votes 
showed 13 of the girls to be 
very close in number of points 
and they were invited to appear 
again before the Committee. The 
Queen and her court, compris- 
ing five girls, will be selected 
from the 13. 

The 13 semi-finalists arc 
Elaine Needham '64. Robbie La- 
Batte '64, Bev Botelho '64, Anne 
Creedon '66. Elaine Howe "66, 
Linda Peterson '66, Sandy Pierce 
'67. Diana Alvarez '67. Barbara 
Taska '67, Judy Sturtevant '67, 
Roxanne Gile '67. Nancy Field 
'67, and Vicki Lippner '67. 

The other girls nominated 
were: Sheila Cohen, Marie Ma- 
kinen, Jan Reimer, Judy Wilcox 
and Paula Wickens from the 
class of 1964; Sandra Jones.

To Dorms 

son, over 1500 signatures have al- 
ready been affixed to the bed- 
sheet which will probably prove 
to be the largest such card ever 
sent. 

Friday, Sandy received cards 
from President Lederle, Dean of 
Students Field, and Dean of 
Women Curtis, as well as a birth- 
day cake from the committee. 

The committee was formed 
when it was learned that Sandy 
will have to remain in the hospf* 
tal many more months before 
being fully recovered from her 
bout with gas gangrene. 

Sandy herself made medical 
history as the first person ever 
cured of the deadly disease by a 
pressure chamber. She developed 
the malady after she was oper- 
ated on for a ruptured appendix. 
She was rushed from Cooley 

Dickinson Hospital in Northamp- 
ton to Children's Hospital Medi- 
cal Center in Boston.

THE MT. SNOW SKI LODGE — Scene on this past weekend's SWAP Conference. 



Three Fraternities 
Draw Social Pro 



Three UMass fraternities have 
been placed on social probation 
for varying lengths of time, ac- 
cording to informed sources. 

Aipha Epsiion Pi, Beta Kappa 
Phi, and Phi Sigma Delta were 
placed on social probation Thurs- 
day evening by action taken by 
the Fraternity Presidents Asso- 
ciation's Judiciary Board. 

No news has been released by 
the FPA in regard to their de- 
cisions. However, usually reliable 
sources have reported that Beta 
Kappa Phi has been placed on 
social probation for fourteen 
days, Alpha Epsiion Pi, twenty- 
one days, and Phi Sigma Delta, 
twenty-eight days. 

The disciplinary action stems 
from certain occurrences at the 
above fraternity houses on Sat- 



urday night, October 5. 

All three of the houses were 
brought before the **PA board on 
charges dealing with the serving 
of liquor at their respective fra- 
ternities. 

In other actions regarding fra- 
ternities this past week it has 
been unofficially reported that 
each fraternity house has re- 
ceived a letter from the Mach- 
mer Hall complex (the Deans' 
Offices) that new and stricter 
punishments are going to be 
placed in effect which will make 
even more prohibitive the serv- 
ing of alcoholic beverages in fra- 
ternities. 

The punishments range from 
social probation to the recom- 
mendation to the President of the

SWAP conference at Mt. Snow, 
Vermont. 

Perhaps the most significant 
development of the conference 
was the emphasis placed on the 
need for closer faculty-student 
bonds. Many suggestions were 
made to remedy this situation. 
For example; making greater 
use of a club or organization ad- 
visor, club-sponsored faculty cof- 
fee hours, and the "20< Plan." 
This latter suggestion was in- 
troduced by Dr. Varley of the 
English department at the clos- 
ing dinner. He feels that students 
should invest twenty cents and 
have coffee dates with professors 
which would in turn initiate a 
more relaxed student-faculty re- 
lationship. It's time for the stu- 
dent to take the initiative! 

Many exciting ideas, both prac- 
tical and idealistic, arose from 
the workshops and from casual 
conversations. Topics of discus- 
sion ranged from student evalua- 
tion forms of individual profes- 
sors to the introduction of cul- 
ture into the Greek program. 

At all discussions and work- 
shops a recording secretary was 
assigned. These reports are be- 
inu condensed and a summary- 
evaluation is being produced. 
This paper will then be distri- 
buted to the SWAP delegates 
and their sponsoring organiza- 
tions. 

Saturday mornings question 
session solved a large number of 
campus queries. Mr. Watts, 
Union Program Director, Mr. 
Buck, RSO Business Manager, 
Mr. Scott, Co-ordinator of Stu- 
dent Activities, and Dean Field 
were most often called upon to 
answer these questions. A ma- 
jority of these questions con- 
cerned the priority listing In the 
calendar office. 

The facilities of Mt. Snow 
were well-used by the delegates.

ning, a very relaxed conference

THE MASSACHUSETTS COLLEGIAN. MONDAY, OCTOBER 14, 1963 







COLLEGIAN Editorial Page 



God And The Student Senate 

At the start of each Student Senate Meeting its entire 
membership stands as one of their number mumbles a few 
incoherent words which is then followed by a louder but still 
as incoherently mumbled Amen from the rest of those as- 
sembled. 

This is the Student Senate's way of prayer. 

This Wednesday evening there will be a bill on the floor 
of the Senate which asks that the present prayer be replaced 
with a few seconds of silence at the beginning of each ses- 
sion. 

The Mathieson-Howard motion is a significant one, for 
it will require a good deal of thought on the part of each 
Senator, something which is unfortunately quite rare. 

Opponents of the motion have based their objections 
on one main assumption, the bill is anti-religious. 

Nothing could be farther from the truth. 

We are sure that the proponents of the motion have no 
desire to make the Student Senate an anti-religious body. 
Rather they would make whatever religious action the 
Senate takes more meaningful and worthwhile. 

At present, the opening prayer is nothing more than 
a perfunctory mumble, with its real meaning subordinated 
to what is now its primary function ; that of lending an air 
of respectability to the Senate. 

This bill would have those Senators who truly wish to 
offer a devotional prayer to God, doing so, in their individ- 
ual manner. 

It would also allow those Senators who do not wish 
to pray, a short period of time to think of their responsi- 
bility not only to the Senate but also to those they represent. 

No harm can come from this bill, only good. If properly 
used by each Senator those few brief seconds at the start 
of each Senate meeting will definitely be more worthwhile 
and certainly more meaningful.

The Great Pumpkin 

The Seed Of Resistence 

by AXEL 

With Halloween fast approaching, many of my cohorts 
have shown curiosity about the origin of the legends of 
The Great Pumpkin (now so widely disseminated through 
the newspaper series, Peanuts). One or two of the more 
perceptive inquisitors realized by my toothy grin that I 
must be something of a pumpkin-head (as authorities on 
pumpkin are called) and asked me to explain this recently 
revived legend. 

I shan't take time to brag about the substantial niche 
that I have carved for myself in the field of pumpkins, but, 
being a hard shelled and seedy old veteran of many an 
orange escapade, I will go right into the requested explan- 
ation. 

The legend of The Rising of The Great Pumpkin is 
really much of a Cinderella story. There was once, in a quiet 
agricultural valley, a sadly oppressed pumpkin patch. For 
as long as could be remembered, the curse of the gods was 
upon every vine and leaf; and everyone knows that the 
curses of the father shall visit upon the child — the innocent 
pumpkins, born of the vines, were nightly ravaged; 
smashed innocently in their beds by bands of marauding 
fiends from nearby hostile Greek territories. 

No Pumpkin was strong enough to stand up to the 
weapons of the raiders, and finally, when one brave attempt 
after another had cracked, the remaining few drew back 
to the shelter of the cornfields and the protection of that 
hardier stalk. But the older survivors yearned for their old 
homes, and talked of the prophesied day when a glorious 
leader would rise to lead them back to their rightful lands. 

Of course, yearning hardly brings a positive resolution 
to one's problems, and in succeeding years the old strained 
to breed a leader of pumpkins. Finally, the time was ripe, 
and a warning was sent to the hostile Greeks that a giant 
pumpkin had been coached to carry the great orange wave 
to victory. The evil ones only laughed and mocked The 
Great Pumpkin as a hollow threat. That night they would 
go, in force, horrid clubs in hand, to murder and pillage in 
the quiet fields. When they would arrive, the story would 
be quite different ! That midnight of October 31st, would 
go down in pumpkin lore as the most glorious of all days.

MMH 

Barbie Doll 

by MIKE HENCH 

While sorting through my 
stack of erotic second class 
mail, I happened to come 
across a particularly infor- 
mative piece of pornography 
called "The Sears Toy Book." 

Not only did this beauti- 
fully put-together catalog 
arouse "prurient" interests 
in me, but it also made me 
slightly nauseated. 

Before my eyes, in various 
fetching poses and states of 
dishabille, were the figures 
of "Ken," "Tammy," "Tres- 
sy," "Mom," "Dad," "Midge" 
and "Barbie." For those of 
you who aren't familiar with 
Barbie (and one should find 
this familiarity cheap at 
$192), she is a fantastically 
endowed minx with meas- 
urements that rival Play- 
boy's Femlin. (And for those 
of you who aren't familiar 
with her, there is little 
hope. ) 

Having previously alluded 
to my acquaintance with the 
works of Freud, Ellis, Kin- 
sey et al in this column, I 
am sure that the reader will 
see the theraputic value of 
these dolls in terms of the 
studies of these men. It is a 
veritable "theatre" for psy- 
chodrama. Think of it read- 
ers. 

No longer will Dick and 
Jane have to kick Spot when 
they are peeved at Mom and 
Dad. They can now either 
stick pins in "Mom" and 
"Dad" or they can break one 
of Barbie's arms. When 
Mom says "No" to Dick, he 
can go in and kick "Mom" 
across the room. When Baby 
Sally isn't changed, she can 
refuse to change "Mom." 

These little creatures may 
bring about a complete re- 
vitalization of our society. 
Did Orwell envision these 
creatures when he wrote 
198V. Did Huxley know of 
Barbie and Ken when he 
wrote "Brave New World?" 
One can only guess. 

For my own part I know 
that I have rejected these 
Dolls as gifts for my own 
kind, but I find them marvel- 
ous in other respects and 
commend them to others 
who are worried about either 
sex, or lack of sex. 



Melange 

A Degree Of Respectability 

by STEVE ORLEN 

A DEGREE OF RESPECTABILITY 

Conversation 1945: 

Guys: "Hey Marty, whatcha wanna do t'nite?" 

Marty: "I dunno. There's nothin' much goin' on- We might 

as well go to a movie. That oughta pass the time 'til we 

can find some action." 
Conversation 1963: 

Guys: "Hey Marty, what's happening?" 
Marty: "I dunno. There's a party in east village. We might 

as well try that." 
Guy 8: "Forget it man, with your parties. We've got tickets 

to the Lincoln Center Festival. And after that, we're 

going to the Bogart revival at the Bleeker St. Theater. 

Can't miss that!" 
Marty: "But there'll be too many intellectual broads there!" 

Intellectuals at a Humphrey Bogart movie? An inter- 
national film festival in New York City? See a flicker rather 
than go to a party? What is this generation coming to? 
Well, this generation of intellectuals and just plain aware 
people is coming to the movies all over the world — in 
droves. If you're not hip on movies man, you're out of it 

In 1963, going to the movies (the right movies, that is) 
has reached its highest degree of respectability since 
Charlie Chaplin flip-flopped, wadled and clowned across the 
screens in the 1920's. The box office is reaching status sym- 
bol proportions. 

What is the reason for this relatively recent phenom- 
enon? Simply this: certain perceptive groups in the film 
industry, domestic and foreign, have realized (1) the un- 
limited possibilities their medium has to offer and (2) the 
responsibilities they have towards their audience. As a con- 
sequence, film making is looked upon as an art form. It has 
evolved to such a point that many people have stopped go- 
ing to the movies strictly to be entertained or to pass the 
time. They go to witness an art form, much as they might 
go to a Picasso exhibition, a Wagner opera or a poetry read- 
ing. And it is no longer the actors and actresses who re- 
ceive top billing — it is the directors, the nouveaus artistes. 

Who are these artists? In Italy there is Fredrico Fel- 
linni, the celebrated director-author of La Dolce Vita, La 
Strada and his recent autobiographical 8y 2 » and also Anton- 
ioni, for his L'Aventurra trilogy. In France, the audiences 
flock to see a Goddard or a Cocteau film, or Francois Truf- 
faut's Jules et Jim, or Claude Renoir's Grand Ilusions 
(made directly after World War I, and still considered by 
most critics as the finest movie ever made). In Sweden, 
there is Bergman, in England, the makers of Loneliness of 
the Long Distance Runner and Taste of Honey, in Spain, 
the director of the church-banned Viridiana, and in Amer- 
ica, we have such distinguished artists as Shirley Clark, 
Stanley Kramer and the master, Orson Wells. These are 
only a few of the artists in the world's film industry- These 
are the people with something to say, and an unlimited, 
fresh medium in which to say it: social criticism and good 
photography mix well. 

As there are art festivals, now there are film festivals 
and even film museums. After Cannes on the French Med- 
iterranean, there are festivals in Russia, in Poland (even 
the Communists are aware of the far-reaching possibilities 
of films), in Great Britain, in Italy and Germany, and fin- 
ally, for the first time, in the U.S. The recently completed 
Lincoln Center Arts building in New York City offered an 
international film festival this past month. 

But what of us, the audiences out in Amherst, Massa-

BOOM! 

Today, foregoing levity, let us turn our keen young minds to 
the principal problem facing American colleges today: the 
population explosion. Only last week four people exploded in 
Cleveland, Ohio— one of them while carrying a plate of soup. 
In case you're thinking such a thing couldn't happen anywhere 
but in Cleveland, let me tell you about two other cases last 
week— a 45-year-old man in Provo, Utah, and a 19-year-old 
girl in Xorthfield, Minnesota. And, in addition, there was a 
near miss in High Point, North Carolina— an eight-year-old 
boy who was saved only by the quick thinking of his cat, Fred.who 
pushed the phone off the hook with his muzzle and dialed the 
department of weights and measures. (It would, perhaps, have 
been more logical for Fred to dial the fire department, but one 
can hardly expect a cat to summon a fire engine which is fol- 
lowed by a Dalmatian, can one?) 

But I digress. The population explosion, 1 say, is upon us. 
It is, of course, cause for concern but not for alarm, because I 
feel sure that science will ultimately find an answer. After all,

has not science in recent years brought us such marvels as the 
maser, the bevatron, and the Marlboro filter? Oh, what a saga 
of science was the discovery of the Marlboro filter! Oh, what a 
heart-rending epic of trial and error, of dedication and perse- 
verance! And, in the end, what a triumph it was when the 
Marlboro research team, after years of testing and discarding 
one filter material after another— iron, nickel, tin, antimony, 
obsidian, poundcake— finally emerged, tired but happy, from 
their laboratory, carrying in their hands the perfect filter 
cigarette! Indeed, what rejoicing there still is whenever we 
light up a Marllwro which comes to us in soft pack and Flip- 
Top Box in all fifty states and Cleveland! 

Yes, science will ultimately solve the problems arising from 
the population explosion, but meanwhile America's colleges 
are in dire straits. Where can we find classrooms and teachers 
for today's gigantic influx of students? 

Well sir, some say the solution is to adopt the trimester sys- 
tem. This system, already in use at many colleges, eliminates 
Bummer vacations, has three semesters per annum instead of 
two, and compresses a four-year-course into three years. 

This is, of course, good, but is it good enough? Even under 
the trimester system the student has occasional days off. More- 
over, his nights aje utterly wasted in sleeping. Is this the kind 
of all-out attack that is indicated? 

I say no. I say desperate situations call for desperate reme- 
dies. I say that partial measures will not solve this crisis. I 
say we must do no less than go to school every single day of 
the year. But that is not all. I say we must go to school 24 
hours of every day! 

The benefits of such a program are, as you can see, obvious. 
First of all, the classroom shortage will disappear because all 
the dormitories can be converted into classrooms. Second, the 
teacher shortage will disappear because all the night watchmen 
can be put to work teaching solid state physics and Restoration 
drama. And finally, overcrowding will disappear because every- 
body will quit school.

La Dolce Vita Revisited 

TO: The author of "The Good Life" 

Congratulations!! I am glad to find that there is some- 
one on this campus who shares my sentiments. 

Gerald M. Myers, '65 



Dear Editor: 

Regarding the article on sex education in Wednesday's 
Collegian, we feel that it was not only shocking but did not 
offer a solution to the actual problem — immorality. While 
we agree that sex education would be of some value, we do 
not agree with the author's obvious condonation of the use 
of contraceptives by unmarried students. Instead of offer- 
ing a solution to the problem of immorality on campus, he 
presents only a way of hiding it or possibly spreading it. 
As far as avoiding the most serious consequences of pre- 
marital sex is concerned, it would be far more effective to 
inform students of the potential outcomes of premarital sex. 
Perhaps, then they might intelligently consider not only 
pregnancy, but also the possibility of venereal disease.

The Good Life' Is Good 

by STEVE LEVINE 

In Wednesday's Collegian there appeared an article by an anony- 
mous author expressing great disillusionment with college life (The 
Good Life). It is indeed unfortunate that this young lady feels so 
dissatisfied, but I feel that it is appropriate to mention that this 
article consists solely of generalizations and unjustifiable implica- 
tions. 

The first charge levelled against UMass men is that they lack 
maturity. Well, perhaps this is true to a limited extent. Still, the 
senior is considerably more mature than the freshman largely be- 
cause he has had the experience of college In all Its aspects. This In- 
cludes social life as well as studies. An interest in parties, girls, and 
an occasional drink are certainly a part of life, are very common, 
and by no means indicate a lack of character. The unhappy writer 
might be happier if she tried harder to find entertainments suitable 
to herself and spent less time finding fault with others. A sign of 
maturity is the willingness to accept life and other people, and to 
respect each person's right to live as he chooses. This critic of others' 
lack of maturity is herself lacking a mature attitude toward life. 

As for the pajama and toga parties, these are parties — not or- 
gies — and there is no need to lack respect for girls who attend them. 
The costumes are for laugh, ind the parties are fun, but at neither 
of the two pajama parties I have attended was there any breach of 
good taste. As a member of the fraternity built on one level, I would 
like to say that this expensive structure was not designed with the 
avoidance of rules in mind. The house was constructed in accordance 
with the best principles of modern architecture and was designed 
for comfort rather than immorality. 

In conclusion, I believe that this girl has been too quick to con- 
demn. Admittedly we all have a good deal of growing up to do be- 
tween our entrance and graduation from college. I feel that I am 
gaining maturity from social life as well as from my studies and 
that the person who neglects either will be sorely handicapped In 
future life. 

MORTAR BOARD COUNTERS 

Mortar Board, for those of you who don't know, is a senior wom- 
en's honor society whose objectives are service, scholarship and 
leadership. In one of the past issues of the Collegian it was implied 
that Mortar Board members made uncomplimentary generalizations 
concerning the male population on our campus. If this impression 
was given, we of Mortar Board would like to apologize for this mis- 
understanding and hope the writer of the October 9th article will 
see that she was mistaken. We think the caliber of UMase students, 
both male and female, Is a high one, where many "nice" people are 
to be found.

Double Standard 

To the Editor: 

The recent action of the ad- 
ministration In bringing three 
fraternities before their peers for 
trial In a charge of policy has 
led to general criticism of the 
morals and standards of the cam- 
pus houses. 

Dormitory and off campus stu- 
dents have set up double stan- 
dards for themselves and frater- 
nities. Drinking and the having 
of women in rooms is no worse in 
a dormitory, fraternity, or apart- 
ment. There are students who 
drink and get sick in the dorms 
and have women in their rooms. 
The fraernities represent 209£ of 
the campus. They can't possibly 
account for more than a minor- 
ity of the men who have to be 
carried to their rooms or the 
girls whose hands are guided to 
their names on the sign out 
sheet. Wild parties in Sunder- 
land or Hadley in "fabulous off 
campus houses or apartments" 
are not considered when students 
become disgusted at so-called 
horror shows at fraternities. Just 
because "liberals and others" 
hate fraternities as bigoted 
cliques there is no reason to 
make the houses scapegoats. 

Sure students get drunk at 
houses, drive, get sick, etc. But 
so do dormitory residents and 
those off-campus. If the admin- 
istration wishes to enforce drink- 
ing laws and enforce moral stan- 
dards let them make a 100% 
drive. 

The Independent who goes to 
a bar with a group of "friends" 
or to a party off campus is no 
better or worse than those in 
house*.

The Common Cold: World Famous Schola Cantorum 
A $5 Billion Thief Comes To University Campus 



Man has unleasned the energy 
of the atom, has hurled satel- 
lites into orbit, but still is 
stymied by the mystery of the 
common cold. 

Practically everyone has been 
victimized by the common cold. 
It blocks the nasal passages. It 
produces a "sandpaper" throat. 
It stuffs the head. It strikes the 
average person at least twice a 
year, and it steals more time and 
money than any other disease in 
the medical textbooks. 

The common cold causes a loss 
of 150,000,000 work days annual- 
ly in this country, according to 
the United States Public Health 
Service. Employee absenteeism, 
medical bills and production 
losses, it has been estimated, cost 
the country the staggering sum 
of five billion dollars a year. 
Thus, the common cold is con- 
sidered the Number One health 
problem facing industry today. 



Physicians have long been bat- 
fled by the common cold and its 
elusive hit-and-run tactics. Their 
sense of frustration was aptly 
characterized by Sir William 
Osier, a famous physician, who 
remarked, "There is only one 
way to treat a cold — with con- 
tempt." 

The puzzle of the common rold 
has given birth to many theories. 
In 17th century England, some 
physicians thought that the snif- 
fles were caused by a "flux," or 
discharge from the brain. This 
led some people to try sniffing 
snuff to "clear the brain." Lords 
and dukes inhaled snuff with 
gusto, sneezed like thunder, but 
made little headway against 
their colds. 

In desperately trying to cope 

with the common cold, people 

have tried all kinds of remedies. 

These have included an odorous 

(Continued on page 6) 





I. Excuse me, sir. I'm conducting 
a poll for the college newspaper. 
I wonder if I might ask you 
a few questions? 

Be my guest. 



2. In your opinion, what are some 
of America's most significant 
achievements in the past 
50 years? 

Huh? 





3. Let me put it this way. During 
the last half century what new 
ideas have led to important 
benefits for the American people? 

Well,uh- there's the 
two-platoon system. 



4. I'll rephrase the question. Since 
1912, what developments can you 
think of that have made the lot 
of the working man easier? 

Now you're getting tricky. 




3. Give it a try. 




Well, speaking off the top of 
my head, I might say 
stretch socks. 

I'm sure everyone would agree 
they've been useful. But isn't 
there something with a bit more 
social significance that comes 
to mindr 

There certainly is. There's 
Croup Insurance, the 
principle of which is to help 



provide protection for those 
who need it most and can 
afford it least. Pioneered and 
developed by Equitable, 
it has provea most efficacious. 
Today, the working man 
and his family enjoy a broad 
spectrum of protection 
provided by Croup Insurance. 
For that reason, I would 
most emphatically suggest 
its inclusion among the 
significant achievements. But 
I still think the two-platoon 
system is pretty important.

Student Cars Present 
More Parking Problems 

Reprinted from The Wall Street use of cars by all freshmen and 



Journal of Thursday. Oct. 10, 

196S. 

Student cars are a mounting 
headache for college administra- 
tors. 

Ohio State estimates its car 
population, already overtaxing 
facilities, jumped 1,000 this year 
to 12.000. San Francisco States 
neighbors complain that students 
monopolize street parking space. 
Los Angeles State figures facili- 
ties to solve its parking and traf- 
fic woes would cost $5 million. 

To relieve the jam, more 
schools tighten student driving 
restrictions, State-operated 
schools in Kentucky now ban the 



by sophomores with under a B 
average. Florida State makes its 
campus off-limits to undergrad- 
uate motorists. Wheaton College 
in Illinois holds that cars are 
"not good for morale or morals," 
and restricts their use to juniors 
and seniors who show a need to 
drive. Illinois sets up a nickel 
shuttle bus to campus points 
from outlying parking lots. 
Louisiana State uses a gaily dec- 
orated, rubber-tired "Tiger 
Train." for the same purpose. 

At Berkeley, University of 
California sophomores petitioned 
the administration to ban car 
use by freshmen.

Michigan To Eliminate 
Membership Discrimination 



.1- 



ANN ARBOR. Mich. (CPS) — 
The University of Michigan Stu- 
dent Government Council passed 
a motion Wednesday night which 
seeks to eliminate discrimination 
in the membership selection 
practices of student groups. 

The motion will become official 
Tuesday unless vetoed by the 
vice-president for student affiairs 
or ordered a 14 day stay by the 
advisory faculty commit ^pe, on 
referral. 

Entitled "Membership Selec- 
tion in Student Organization," 
the motion establishes a member- 
ship committee to investigate al- 
leged discriminatory practices in 
student groups. It also sets up n 
three-man student controlled n 
bunal to hear proceeding 
tiated by the membership 
mittee.

listing their membership selec- 
tion practices. 

The motion passed Wednesday 
empowers the membership com- 
mittee to call for these state- 
ments. 

Passage of the motion cli- 
maxed a two-year struggle by 
the Council to create a motion 
regulating against discrimination 
in the selecton of members to 
student groups. 

The moton specifically estab- 
lishes a membership committee 
consisting of five student mem- 
bers including a chairman whose 
duties are to "receive complaints, 
collect and process relevant in- 

• nation, investigate suspected 
iation. attempt conciliation 
1 initiate and prosecute pro- 

'dings before the appropriate 
campus tribunals." 

The tribunal, consisting of 
:hrce members selection by the 
Council executive committee is 
charged with hearing all pro- 
ceedings initiated by the mem- 
K, rship committee. Its purpose is 
to ascertain facts and impose 
shere necessary on behalf of 

•uncil "appropriate sanctions 
upon student organizations found 
in violation of rules promulgated 
by Studer*. Government Council 
pursuant to this resolution." 

The tribunal will work along 
the general lines of a court trial. 
L'iHJpg formal notification end 
appeal rights, but the aclual pro- 
cedures within tihe hearings will 
not necessarily adhere strictly to 
courtroom rules. 

There have been unofficial ob- 
jections raised by members of the 
faculty committee on referral to 
this tribunal. They feel that 
Council will be stepping over its 
limits of authority if it ap- 
points a faculty momltor as one 
of the committee. 

Only two of the three have to 
be student members, the motion 
tates.

On Sunday afternoon, Oct. 
20, one of the greatest jazz drum- 
mers on the contemporary scene, 
perhaps in the history of jazz, 
will thrill percussion fans with 
another of his great per- 
formances. Joe Morello, a Spring- 
field native, has gained fame and 
fortune with the Dave Brubeck 
Quartet, and rightly so for he is 
so highly regarded in the jazz 
world that he has made record- 
ings which are purchased by 
drummers wishing to imitate his 
style. 

Familiar to audiences in this 
area Morello's movements seems 
to defy possible human reaction 
time. His performances on re- 
cordings seem to be produced by 
at least two drummers, and hfs 
ability to improvise within rigid, 
but irregular rythms has made 
best sellers of all three of the 
quartet's recent "time" series. 

Morello will be performing 
with the Brubeck Quartet at the 
Homecoming Concert, Sunday 
afternoon October 20 at 2:00. 
Tickets are currently on sale. 

For those who enjoy jazz or 
percussion or just good music by 
contemporary artists, here is the 
way to climax Homecoming 
Weekend.

THE MASSACHUSETTS COLLEGIAN, MONDAY, OCTOBER 14, 1963 



Placement Convocation 
Discusses Job-Seeking 



The Twin Menaechmi 



Miss Edith Antunes, speaker 
at the Senior Women's Place- 
ment Convocation stressed the 
importance of the senior woman 
to "sit down and analyze her ex- 
periences and abilities in the four 
questions: what she has done 
successfully, what other people 
have commended her on, what 
machines she can operate, and 
what are her likes and dislikes." 
This evaluation sheet of one's 
capabilities is a valuable aid for 
a woman in her job interview. 

The various aspects of job- 
seeking were discussed by Miss 
Antunes in detail. Among these 
were: the importance of the in- 
dividual in making her own deci- 
sion in job choice; the opportuni- 
ties awaiting the college grad- 
uate of today; graduate school 
studies; and the interview. 

The fact that there exists two 
major fallacies today relating to 
occupational choice was brought 
out by the speaker. One of these 
states that a woman has to be 
better qualified in her occupa- 
tion than in any other field. The 
other fallacy claims that an in- 
dividual's capabilities are classi- 
fied with one's occupation. These 
two thoughts should definitely 
not interfere with a woman's

choice of a career. 

Miss Antunes discussed the op- 
portunities available to the col- 
lege woman, especially stressing 
the federal government openings. 
There are many jobs open for 
women today because of the ra- 
pid turnover in the Labor De- 
partment which has risen to 
8.9% in the past two years. The 
Federal Government has a great 
deal to offer in the Foreign Serv- 
ice area to majors from "Zoology 
to Art" according to Miss An- 
tunes. Many travel opportunities 
are open to women in this field. 

The majors in the fields of 
Math, Physics, and Home Eco- 
nomics were encouraged by Miss 
Antunes to pursue graduate 
studies. She stated that the Eng- 
lish, History, and Language ma- 
jors, among others, should be 
prepared to break into an oc- 
cupation through the typists' and 
receptionists' door because there 
is no immediate available room 
at the top in these fields. 

It is extremely worth-while in 
long term thinking for a woman 
to continue her studies in grad- 
uate work. Yet, the speaker 
stated that it is not to be urged 
just because "it is the thing to 
do." 

Miss Antunes concluded the 
Convocation with the statement, 
"The University can provide only 
half of what counts: knowledge. 
It is up to the woman to supply 
the other half: determination 
and energy. It is up to the person 
seeking a job to sell herself in 
the interview and continually in 

Common Cold . . .

mixture of garlic and brown su- 
gar candy, purges, hot baths, 
excessive sweating, sun lamps, 
laxatives, faith healing, special 
diets, alcohol and even the wear- 
ing of red underwear. None Of 
these, scientifically speaking, has 
done much to deter the course of 
the common cold. 

It took many years befoix 
scientists could pinpoint the 
germ involved in the common 
cold. Walter Kruse, a bacterio- 
logist, reported in 1914 that he 
had successfully tranmitted the 
common cold to human volun- 
teers with filtered nasal secre- 
tions free of bacteria. 

Then came Dr. Alphons Ray- 
mond Dochez in 1931 with the 
finding that he had been able to 
grow a cold-causing germ in 
chick embryo tissues and had 
transmitted a cold to a chim- 
panzee. It is notable that only 
man and the chimpanzee are 
susceptible to the common cold. 
Subsequently, other investigators 
pinned down a virus or several 
strains q{ viruses as the culprits 
responsible for the common cold. 

Nobody knows where the com- 
mon cold virus or viruses go be- 
tween colds. The virus may lie 
hidden in the body until special 
circumstances propel it into ac- 
tion.

pledges all sororities are looking 
for," according to Millar. 

There were only two other 
girls cut during the early stages 
of rush out of 115 who sought 
membership. 

"There were many other cases 
in the past when sororities mem- 
bership was questioned by the 
faculty." Millar said. "This was 
not a test case as far as the 
administration is concerned, but 
the straw that finally broke the 
camel's back.' 

"No longer can sorority mem- 
l>ership practices escape serious 
doubt," he added. 

When national sororities were 
first allowed on the Portland 
State campus in 1960 the faculty 
decided the "serious doubt" 
would be the criterion for judg- 
ing membership issues. 

"The burden of proof is on the 
sorority," Millar said. "They 
must show that they do not prac- 
tice discrimination."

and to establish the future status

Redmen 21-3 . . . 

(Continued from page 8) 
ting the ball on the UConn 42. 
Eight plays later UMass was on 
the three yard line of the Hus- 
I again and Warren duplicat- 
ed his feat of a few minutes 
earlier by plunging over for the 
score. For the third consecutive 
time Whelchel split the uprights 
for the extra point. 

Trailing 21-3 in the late stages 
of the game, the Huskies went 
all out to register a TD of their 
own on the scoreboard. Quarter- 
back Doug Gaffney, Aceto's un- 
derstudy, took to the air and 
brought his team from the UC 
20 to the UM 37 before he ran 
out'of steam and the Husky drive 
was halted. 

The Redmen almost added an- 
other score on the last play of 
the game. On second down and 
five from the UMass 41, halfback 
Dave Kelly took a handoff from 
sub quarterback Steve Trbovich 
and scampered to the UConn 22 
before he was finally driven out 
of bounds. 

The UMass line still continues 
to harass opponents' running 
backs and raise havoc with its 
blitzes of enemy quarterbacks. 



UConn's rushing total Saturday 
was a weak 66 yards. Quarter- 
back Lou Accto will probably see 
onrushing Redmen linemen in his 
sleep for the next few nights. 

Linemen Bernie Dallas, Milt 
Morin, Bob Tedoldi and Bob 
Burke were the defensive stand- 
outs for the Redmen in contain- 
ing Connecticut's offensive 
threats. 

Halfback Fred Lewis found 
that UConn had assigned two or 
three defenders to watch his ev- 
ery move. The Junior speedster 
was held to 33 yards in 14 car- 
ries. Art Warren picked up 63 
yards and two TD's in 14 at- 
tempts. Whelchel carried eight 
times for a total of 63 yards. 
Ken Palm had 28 yards on 7 
tries. 

The "M-Twins\, 6'4 Milt Mor- 
in and 6'3 Bob Meers continued 
to be Whelchel's favorite receiv- 
ers. Morin caght three for 70 
yards including one TD pass. 
Meers pulled in two tosses for 
14 yards. Both boys are sophs. 
THE WIN OVER UCONN gives 
UMass a 3-0-1 record in four 
games. The Bay Staters have 
now registered wins over Maine 
and Bucknell in addition to the 



UConn win. A 0-0 tie keeps the 
Redmen slate from being perfect. 
UMass now is 2-0 in Yan Con 
standings as a result of Satur- 
day's visit. UNH, the team that 
edged out UMass for the title 
last year and a top contender 
for the title this year had its 10 
game win streak snapped by 
Maine Saturday. 

THERE SEEMS TO BE a 

slight controversy as to the exact 
standings between UMass and 
UConn football teams. Joseph J. 
Saltys, Director of Sports Infor- 
mation at UConn claimed that 
prior to yesterdays contest, the 
series stood at 16-16. 

Assistant Sports Information 
Director at UMass Dick Bresci- 
ani disagreed, saying that UMass 
held a 17-16 edge. "Where did 
the other game come from?" in- 
quired Saltys. Bresciani pointed 
to a 34-6 UMass win listed in the 
UMass football brochure, which 
carried an 1899 date beside the 
score. "That must have been a 
fraternity game," joked Saltys. 
I'd like some more particularities 
on it." At last word Bresciani 
was going back to look at the 
grid records for 1899.

the book on baseball until Feb- 
ruary, here's one last look at the 
ludicrous side of America's Na 
tional Pastime. 

These are the favorite base- 
ball stores of years gone by. 

The first major-league team 
ever to press spikes into the 
turf of the Los Angeles Coli- 
seum was not the Dodgers but, 
ironically, the Giants. The trans- 
planted Brooks were too busy 
being feted in a parade through 
town to take first licks at bat- 
ting practice. So the former Po- 
lo Grounds tenants had the du- 
bious honor of drawing first 
bead on the neighborly left-field 
fence. 

THIS IS JOE MCCARTHY'S 
FAVORITE story. Joe had a 
dream that he'd gone to heaven 
and had been ordered to assem- 
ble and manage a ball club. Mc- 
Carthy's eyes glistened as he 
surveyed the talent around him 
— Christy Mathewson, Walter 
Johnson, Cy Young. Babe Ruth, 
Lou Gehrig, Tris Speaker and 
all the other super stars. 

"This will be the greatest 
team of all time," gloated the 
happy Marse Joe. "No one will 
ever best us." Just then the 
phone rang. It was Satan call- 
ing from downstairs and chal- 
lenging the heavenly hosts to 
a ball game. 

"But you haven't a chance or 
winning," protested Mac to the 
Devil. "I've got all the ballplay- 
ers." 

"1'know that," skid Satan, 
"but I've got all the Umpires." 

THE GLOOM IN THE YAN- 



KEE CLUBHOUSE after the 
news that Billy Martin had been 
traded to the Athletics was so 
thick that an icebreaker could 
not have plowed through. Here 
was the most popular member 
of the squad. 

On the bus young Bobby 
Richardson, the rookie who re- 
placed Billy the Kid, sat alone 
in a double seat in silence star- 
ing out the window. He looked 
around when someone finally 
slipped into the seat beside him, 
and then he smiled gratefully. 
The newcomer was Billy Mar- 
tin. 

"Good luck kid," said Martin, 
extending his hand. "Don't wor- 
ry. You're real good and you've 
got it made." 

Only a big man could have 
acted that way, and Billy the 
Kid was showing his size. 

One winter, a young Pitts- 
burg outfielder named Casey 
Stengel lost a heated salary bat- 
tle with owner Barney Dreyfus. 
Some months later, in an early- 
season game, Casey should have 
had a triple, but was tagged out 
at third when he chugged into 
the bag standing up. 

"Why didn't you slide?" 
moaned the coach. 

"With the salary I'm getting," 
said Casey, "I'm so hollow and 
starving that I'm liable to ex- 
plode like a light bulb if I ever 
hit that ground too hard." 

ON THIS NOTE the 1963 
baseball season comes to a close. 
It was a pitchers' year as evi- 
denced by the number of twen- 
ty game winners, and a Dodg- 
ers' year as evidence by a new 
world's championship.

THE MASSACHUSETTS COLLEGIAN, MONDAY, OCTOBER 14, 1963 



Redmen 21-3 Over Huskies 

Homecoming Crowd Of 
11,000 Sees 2 Warren TD's 



by STEVE HEVVEY 

STOKRS — Undefeated Uni- 
versity of Massachusetts, behind 
All Yankee Conference quarter- 
back Jerry Whelchel, spoiled the 
University o f Connecticut's 
Homecoming celebration by pin- 
ning a 21-13 loss on the winless 
UConns Saturday afternoon. 

The crafty junior signal caller 
showed some 10,937 fans at Me- 
morial Stadium how he came by 
the All-Conference rating as he 
completed seven of ten passes, 
ran for another 63 yards and did 
tricks with the ball that only a 
magician could accomplish. 

Husky fans, hoping for a big 
upset after the UConns had lost 
their first two games, soon found 
out that their day had not yet 
arrived. Midway through the 
first period Whelchel unleashed a 
bomb to end Milt Morin who 
gathered it in at the 14, shook 
off a tackier and ambled into 
the end zone. Whelchel's pass 
came from his own 44 and settled 
perfectly into Morin's o u i - 
stretched arms. Whelchel added 
the extra point and the Redmen 
were off and running, 7-0. 

The Huskies took the kickoff 
following the UM score and 
reeled off 19 plays getting as far 



fore the drive bogged down. The 
Huskies had to settle for a field 
goal, a 32 yard affair by half- 
back Dick Seely. Up to Seely's 
three-pointer the Redmen had 
held all opposition scoreless for 
186 minutes and 20 seconds of 
play. 

Penalties and an intercepted 
pass killed off two more UMass 
scoring threats in the second 
quarter. A clipping penalty and 
a holding penalty hampered the 
Redmen as they operated deep in 
UConn territory. At one point 
the Redmen had a second down 
on the UC nine, but a holding 
penalty put them back on Conn's 
24. 

On fourth down on the UConn 
20 UMass's Terry Swanson de- 
cided to get into the field goal 
act. His attempt was short and 
the ball was picked up by Husky 
back Dave Karponi who returned 
it to the 25 where he was hit and 
fumbled the ball which Freddy 
Lewis picked up. 

A CARRY BY PALM, a pass 
to Morin, and another carty by 
Palm gave UM a first down on 
the UConn 13. A pass by Whel- 
chel was intercepted by Brian 
Smith. Just before the half end- 
ed Whelchel intercepted an Ace- 



The third quarter turned out 
to be a contest between punters. 
UMass's Phil Vandersee, and 
UConn's Jeff McConnell each 
punted three times. Swanson had 
one of his boots blocked by the 
Huskies but no harm was done. 

In the fourth and final frame 
the Redmen broke the game open 
when fullback Warren scored two 
TD's both from three yards out. 

Warren's first score capped an 
11 play, 90 yard drive. Starting 
from his own ten Whelchel mixed 
up his calls well, sending PhTl 
De Rose, Lewis and Warren 
through the Husky defenses to 
the UM 44. A Whelchel to Morin 
pass put the ball at mid field 
for a first down. Whelchel car- 
ried himself to the 45 of UConn 
and then sent Art Warren on the 
draw play to the 13. 

Freddy Lewis, closely surveiled 
all day by UConn defenders, was 
thrown for a two yard loss. On 
second down and 12 Ken Palm 
knifed forward to the three to 
set the stage for Warren's TD 
plunge. Whelchel kicked the ex- 
tra point. 

The Huskies ran three plays 
after the UM score and were 
forced to punt, the Redmen get-

Harriers Tri Meet Victors 
Brouillet Team Leader 



THE VARSITY CROSS 
COUNTRY TEAM put on a great 
display of clutch running last 
Friday as the Redmen proved to 
be most impolite hosts. The team 
literally "ran away" with the 
meet. UMass had a score of 30, 
followed by Providence (46), 
UConn (72), and B.U. (95). 

Captain Bob Brouillet con- 
tinued undefeated as he walked 
away from the field. A cold 
slowed Bob down so that he did 
not get the course record, but his 
time of 24:31.4 was 43 seconds 
ahead of Paul Scott of B.U.. the 
second place finisher. 

The Redmen went into this 
meet knowing that if they 
wanted to do good the rest of the 



season they would have to beat 
Providence. Following Digger's 
example, the team let nothing 
stop them. Senior Gene Colburn 
ran one of the best races he has 
ever run while at UMass, as he 
beat junior Bob Ramsey for 
fourth place in the meet and 
second place on the team. Ram- 
sey seemed to be dead tired at 
the 4 mile mark, but he put on 
a great kick to overhaul 4 Pro- 
vidence men in the last % of a 
mile, and took fifth place in the 
meet. Ramsey's time of 25:39 is 
15 seconds faster than his best 

time on this course last year. 

Sophomore Bob Molvar took 
ninth in the meet, and junior 
Tom Panke was eleventh. 



Panke's performance was par- 
ticularly encouraging as this is 
the first real good race Tom has 
run this year, and a lot of the 
team's hopes ride on his should- 
ers. Bob Larson and Al McPhail 
rounded out the top seven finish- 
ers for UMass. Although the 
places taken by Ron Oakland, 
Jim Collins. Russ Murphy, John 
Urban, and Paul Barents did not 
effect the Redmen's score, they 
all deserve credit for their fine 
performances. 

PERHAPS more important 
than the fine performances 
turned in Friday was the fact 
that the Redmen started closing 
the gap between the runners. 
Bob Brouillet beat Gene Colburn

DICK WARREN leading groundgalner for Redmen at Storrs. 

Manlius Prep Downs 
Little Redmen 19-12 



by KEVIN COYLE 

LAST SATURDAY, THE 
FRESHMAN football team 
opened its season against a 
strong Manlius Prep squad. The 
frosh put up a good show de- 
spite the result. 

It looked like a good day at 
the start when UMass recovered 
its own kickoff on the Manlius 
30 yard line. Al Caruso capped 
the thirty yard drive with a scv- 
enteen yard scoring pass to Dick 
Qualey; the conversion attempt 
failed. Manlius then put on a nice 
sustained march of eighty yards 
with Tom Kyasky scoring on a 
nineteen yard option run, Bill 
Boucek then kept the score tied 
by missing the PAT. Midway in 
the second quarter the fresh- 
man made a nice drive from 
their own 27 to paydirt where 
Ted Hoague grabbed Al Caruso's 
pass. 

Dana Lockhart and Paul 
Campbell did most of the road- 
work while Dirk Qualey and Ron 
Durkin snatched Al Caruso 
passes in keep the drive varied 
The team kept alive Its tradition 
by not making the conversion 
again. Their commanding 12*6 



lead lasted twelve seconds by the 
scoreboard clock as Tony Kyasky 
took the following kickoff nine- 
ty-six yards for a score. Manlius 
also bungled the conversion and 
things were even again. The first 
twenty minutes of the second 
half were even. Then UMass 
started making mistakes and 
suffering from an apparent lack 
of stamina. Manlius, capitalizing 
on UMass mistakes, marched 
forty-three yards with Bill Bou- 
cek plunging over from the 2 
yard line. The PAT was good 
and it was all over for the class 
Of '67. Manlius then played hard 
defense and ball control until the 
siren. The final score: 19-12, 
Manlius. 

COACH DON JOHNSON was 

pleased by his club's showing 
against the experienced Manlius 
team which has quality, proven 
by its 3-0 record. The coach was 
particularly happy over the play 
Of guard-linebacker Bob Santucci 
who played a good, hard-hitting 
game. Quarterbacks Al Caruso 
and Joe Bel forte looked good 
with Caruso calling smartly and 
Belforte exhibiting a good arm 
with a couple of fifty yard al- 
most*.

The Dave Brubeck Quartet, 
one of the world's leading pro- 
gressive jazz groups, will present 
a concert this Sunday at 2 p.m. 
in the Curry Hicks Cage. 

Tickets for the Brubeck con- 
cert are now on sale at the 
S.U. box office. 

The event is being sponsored 
by Alpha Phi Omega, men's 
service fraternity. Proceeds will 
go to the art acquisition fund, 
which is earmarked to furnish a 
gallery in the University's pro- 
jected Fine Arts Center. 

Brubeck has been improvising 
musical themes since his youth 
in Concord, Calif. At Mills Col- 
lege in Oakland. Calif., he organ- 
ized an experimental jazz group 
known as "The 8." 

"The 8" happened to be heard 
by impressario Jimmy Lyons and 
pianist Marie Coppin. who re- 
ported the find of a new jazz 
musician and composer to Paul 
Speegle, then NBC program dir- 
ector. 

Since that time. Brubeck has 



made jazz history. For some 
years he has been the world's 
top record seller and one of the 
most sought-after personalities 
in the field of jazz. 

Each member of the Dave 
Brubeck Quartet is an acclaimed 
musician in his own right. 

Paul Desmond, alto sax. is 
considered by many critics to be 
far and away the world's num- 
ber one musician on the alto 
saxophone. 

Joe Morello. the Quartet's 
drummer, has won one poll after 
another in recent years. 

Gene Wright, the newest mem- 
ber of the Quartet, joined the 
group in 1958. Before that, the 
outstanding bassist had been 
featured with Count Basie, Cal 
Tjader and Red Norvo. 

The Quartet's latest record 
offerings include "Dialogues for 
Jazz Combo and Orchestra," 
done with Leonard Bernstein and 
the New York Philharmonic 
and a version of Brubeck's mus- 
ical show, "The Real Ambassa- 
dors "

University Acts On Year-Round 
Operations While Students Sleep 



by KEN BERK 

Year round operation is now a 
part of UMass whether anyone 
likes it or not. 

At the start of the academic 
year, there was an article in the 
Collegian discussing the three 
proposals of the AD HOC com- 
mittee on Year Round Operation. 
These three proposals were: 
(DA first term comparable 
to the present fall semes- 
ter, but opening before La- 
bor Day and closing be- 
fore Christmas. 

(2) A second term compara- 
ble to the present spring 
semester, but opening near 
January First and closing 
the first week of May. 

(3) A split third term begin- 
ning early in May and 
ending the latter part of 
August, but divided into 
two parts— a six week 
session followed by a nine 
week session. 

These proposals were put be- 
fore the Student Senate, and the 



Senate sent them out to com- 
mittee to be re-submitted as sep- 
arate proposals. While the Sen- 
ate has done this, the adminis- 
tration has gone right ahead and 
has already adopted proposal 
number three for the coming 
summer session. The only differ- 
ence being that the session will 
start one week .fter the close of 
the second semester, and will 
have two six week terms (a min- 
or change in the proposal). 

The question now being asked 
is why did the administration 
adopt a proposal while the sen- 
ate was still "acting" on it? 
Many feel that the students did 
not care enough to ask ques- 



tions about the program. In fact, 
the student attitude towards the 
whole concept has been one of 
apathy, instead of one of criti- 
cism or enthusiasm. 

There is still a chance before 
the administration adopts the 
other two proposals. Write into 
the Collegian and express your 
opinion — pro or con. The view 
that the administration has tak- 
en on the apathy of the students 
was expressed as follows: "un- 
less the students express their 
opinions then the administration 
will feel that whatever they do 
concerning year round operation 
will be all right with the student 
body."

THE MASSACHUSETTS COLLEGIAN. WEDNESDAY. OCTOBER 16. 1963 



COLLEGIAN Editorial Pase 



A Conservative View 

To Each According To His Need 

Yes, of course, "to each according to his needs." Not according 
to what he produces, not according to what he earns, but ACCORD- 
ING TO HIS NEEDS. Think about this. This is the banner of social- 
ism. This is the motto of the new rulers of the world, whether they 
be the Nikita Khrushchev of Socialist Russia, the Mao Tse Tung of 
Communist China, or John F. Kennedy of our own Welfare State. 

— Oh!. I'm sorry!, this isn't a welfare state, is it. That's right 
too, it's a capitalist democracy. We don't believe in socialism do we. 
Of course not. Well, we may be a little "liberal." but not in the least 
pink. 

We In the I'nlted States of America don't believe that collectiv- 
ism Is right and good. BIT WE PRACTICE IT ANYWAY. We pay 
farmers not to produce (farm support). The farmers need this. We 
pay unwed mothers more and more money for each new tiligltimate 
child (ADC). They need this. (Besides, it lets us feel good — humani- 
tarian and all.) We pay able-bodied men to sit on their asses (unem- 
ployment compensation). They need this. They are out of work. They 
can't find a job. (It also seems that they are unable to read the 
classified ads.) The poor, the needy, the destitute NEED us. Their 
need is a blank check — with VOIR signature at the bottom of It. 

But again, that depends also on this: Are you "we," or are you 
"they." I stand as I (singular).

Letters To The Editor 



"See You Under A Tree" 

Quick! The Russians have just dropped a bomb on Boston. What 
do you do, where do you go? Last year the answers to these ques- 
tions would have stymied the best minds on campus. Now, however, 
answers to these questions are available. The 8500 or so students, 
faculty and administration would all go to the nearest fall-out 
shelter. Does it really matter if the fall-out shelters on campus do 
not have the total capacity of even a thousand? Of course not, for 
we realize that living conditions throughout the University are 
cramped. 

But let us stop for a minute and think the problem out ration- 
ally. Who of these 8500 should be saved and who should not? It goes 
without saying that the administration ('along with RSO) must be 
the first to be saved. It Is they who must bring the enrollment of our 
school to 20.000 by 1975. Where would the University be If we were 
to lose them. 

With the administration safely tucked away it would naturally 
follow that the faculty (or at least those who had published) would 
be the next to enter. We then find to our amazement that there :s 
room for some students. It is obvious that not any average, run-of- 
the-mill student should be saved. The answer is really quite simple. 
It should be those "student leaders" whose dedication to the school 
up to now has been unrewarded that should be saved. Yes, it should 
be the most intelligent and dedicated of the student body who should 
survive 

One does not need to be a mathematician to figure that some of 
uh will be left out. Well, see you under a tree.

A REVIEW 

Boston Symphony At Smith 

by LANGDON F. LOMBARD 

On Sunday night. October 13. at John M. Greene Hall on the 
campus of Smith College, a capacity house listened with what should 
have been great enthusiasm to the unfolding of two great works: 
the Beethoven Symphony No. 2 in D Major and the Prokofiev Sym- 
phony No. 5, Op. 100. and well they might have as these two works 
are too long neglected giants evidently unfamiliar with the audierfce. 

The work by Beethoven is described by many to be his first 
"Pastoral'' symphony. This was brought out with careful detail 
by Mr. Leinsdorf especially in the low strings and the higher wood- 
winds. Not only were the strings quite stoggy where it was applicable 
but the high lyrics of the winds sang much as Beethoven must have 
wanted them. 

It was unfortunate that this work is not more familiar; the au- 
dience may have realized what sort of genius was taking place on 
stage. 

Much the same could be said about the Prokofiev except that the 
message of the composer was quite different. Prokofiev intended It 
"as a hymn to free and happy Man, to his mighty power, his pure 
and noble spirit." To accomplish this feat, the composer scored a 
rather large tympani section calling for bass drum, cymbals, kettle 
drums, and military drum. It was felt that the audience because of its 
unfamiliarity with the work was loath to accept such bombastics. 

But it was a concert to be remembered by the audience that 
knew the works as a mile stone, not only of Mr. Leindorf's insis- 
tence to present often neglected works, but also as a tribute to one 
of America's finest orchestras whose versatility one can no longer 
question. 



O. G. Not U. T. 

To the Editor: 

The review of Pirandello's "Six Charac- 
ters" in last Friday's Collegian stated in 
part: "Thanks to the aid of the University 
Theater Guild, the lighting was smooth and 
professional." The fine lighting was the pro- 
duct of many hours of hard work by mem- 
bers of the Operetta Guild, not University 
Theater. Their contribution is an example 
of the cooperation which has always existed 
among STUDENT GROUPS on this campus. 

John Burke, Chairman 
Distinguished Visitors Program 

THE DOUBLE STANDARD 

Dear Double Standard: 

After reading your article I could not 
help but write to show my 100% agreement 
with you concerning the problem of a double 
standard. The only trouble is that we seem 
to have a trifle disagreement as to where the 
double standard is to be found. It is my opin- 
ion (and that of many other students) that 
the only double standard involved is that of 
a "sincere, virtuous, and respectful picture 
of the molders of men's lives" that the fra- 
ternities disseminate via rushing media (I 
kept my I960 copy of your IFC descrip- 
tions of fraternities for reference) and the 
actual breakdown of human dignity that 
the fraternity really represents. I often won- 
der if much of their literature is not for 
Parents Only. 

I realize that I have left myself open to 
charges ranging from immature to prohibi- 
tionist (relax ... the party gets fewer votes 
all the time), but I have a difficult time, as I 
consider what I have seen in the last three 
years, believing or supporting the theory 
that as a 20 ', minority (?) 
the fraternities account for 
only a relatively few of the 
supported legs or guided 
hands on this campus . . . 
what about those who go to 
the parties as non-members, 
and those being rushed? 

The villain of our age is 
not hatred or bigotry but 
silence. "The Good Life" and 
all those who believe in it 
should speak and put forth 
their own ideas and stand 
openly in opposition to those 
things that they disapprove 
of . . . this is maturity. I 
extend this request to the 
administration as well as 
students for it seems to me 
that the administration must 
do more than send dainty 
little letters from the Com- 
plex. 

For references to use by 
those wishing to do further 
study on the topics touched 
on here I suggest the follow- 
ing: 

1. U.M. Handbook 1963-4, 
p. 61 

2. Friendly Chats With 
the Housemother 

3. Three years of Obser- 
vation (close and distant 
versions) 

4. Two books by Any Jan- 
itor titled "There's a Lot of 
Barf on Weekends," and "I 
Made . ^rtune in 16 oz. 
Cups."

Independent 



Congrats To Collegian 

To the Editor. 

I was very pleased to learn that the Collegian 
will be distributed free to all faculty and staff 
members. You and those responsible for making 
this possible are to be congratulated for what I 
am certain will be a significant contribution to the 
welfare of our University community. 

Sincerely yours, 
Gerald J. Grady 
Business Manager 



To the Editor: 

Please accept my sincere thanks for your decision 
to distribute copies of the Collegian to each mem- 
ber of the faculty. This is truly a forward-looking 
move and I am confident that it is deeply appreci- 
ated by the vast majority of the members of the 
faculty. It seems to me that both students and 
faculty stand to gain from this new policy. You and 
all of the students who participated in the decision 
deserve to be congratulated. 

Sincerely yours, 
Gilbert L. Woodside 
Provost 



To the Editor: 

I want to express my deep appreciation to the 
staff of the Collegian and those responsible for the 
control of student funds for making the Collegian 
available to all members of the faculty. I value this 
very highly as a means for keeping in touch with 
student thought. 

Sincerely yours,

National Newspaper Week — Oct. 13-19 



Lord, Give Me This Day! 

by Ralph McGUI 
Editor, The Atlantic Constitution 

It is written in Proverbs that a word fitly spoken is 
like apples of gold in pictures of silver. 

The beauty of that simile teaches rumility, especially to 
an advertising or newspaper man, whose job it is to use 
words. And 1 am one who believes (and I write as a senti- 
mentalist about our business) that all of us, ad men, report- 
ers, publishers, owners, editors — all of us — have need of 
humility before the power that is in the words which we 
produce. I never go down to the press room, hearing and 
feeling the smooth hum of its precision speed, but that I 
feel humble before it. It is something like holding a sea 
shell up to the ear and hearing in it what a poet has told is 
the noise that time makes as it passes by on its inexorable 
march. The steady, muted roar of the presses seems to me 
the noise that words make — all the written words tapped 
out on typewriters, caught in the hot lines of type, pressed 
into the matrixes, bolted in metal plates to the drums of 
the press — all of them speaking at once to produce the 
steady voice of the presses as they print, fold, cut and count 
the pages of our newspapers, and saying "I am the power 
and the beauty of words." 

I recall being taken to see an old editor when I was a 
young boy who had framed by his desk the familiar old 
motto: 

"Lord, give me this day my daily idea, and forgive me 
the one I had yesterday." 

There are days when all of us toiling in the vineyard 
of words have reason for that motto — so fast do things 
change, and so often is that which seemed so sure yester- 
day, today demonstrated to be nst so sure. 

The fact of a free press, and the full meaning of that 
phrase, I honestly believe, is the chief prop of this free na- 
tion. And God knows we bear a heavy responsibility. And 
truth, if it becomes trite, is yet truth. But, I say quite frank- 
ly, feeling my own guilt as I do, and pointing no accusing 
finger at anyone, that every publisher, every board of di- 
rectors, every editor, and staff need to examine into the 
meaning of the phrase, "Freedom of the Press" and deter- 
mine if they are using it as a tool or a cliche? 

Certainly a free and responsible press, and a press 
which has something to say on its editorial pages, is of 
great value to advertisers. The ads are of more value 
in a newspaper where character and integrity are estab- 
lished. 

I strongly believe that if we do not use our freedom 
in public service, in controversial issues, and in compassion- 
ate awareness of the human condition, we may — and should 
— lose our freedom. 

It is gauranteed? To be sure it is. But, we are up 
against a fact. It is an important one for all Americans, 
to whom the daily paper, with its ads, its news, features 
and editorials, is as much a casual part of their lives as 
the bottle of milk left on the doorstep; and to those of us 
who write and produce newspapers. It is, namely, that 
nothing is guaranteed except it be guaranteed in the minds 
of the people and their loyalties. 

I recall going to Austria at the time the Germans 
moved there in the spring of 1938. For me it was a sort 
of journey on the road to Damascus. There, for the first 
time, I watched all rights, guaranteed in a written, pub- 
lished constitution, disappear because the will for them 
had disappeared long before. I saw men and women ar- 
rested without warrant; I watched abuses of people be- 
cause of their religion; I saw books burned and I saw mag- 
azines and newspapers from outside Austria removed. 
None dared protest. In fact, so bad was the economic and 
political situation in Austria that a majority of the people 
cheered the changes. I have never forgotten it. I have no 
wish to forget. 

And so, today we will continue to enjoy, and have 
available, freedom of speech and press only so long as the 
people recognize that we use it and that we deserve that 
freedom. 



It is important now, I believe, in this 
crisis to defend the one great American 
equality of citizenship. We Americans are 
many peoples, many races, many languages, 
of religions. It is the ideal, the principle, 
American. It seems to me highly important 
newspapers play a part in establishing thi 
all Americans.

business men, professional men. 

The people can understand and defend the press and 
the American system only if we understand and express 
our freedom.

The Collegian And 
The N. Y. Times 

It may seem hard for the 
typical Collegian reader to 
associate Ralph McGill and 
President Kennedy with the 
three times weekly publica- 
tion that appears on the 
University of Massachusetts 
campus. 

It is at first difficult to as- 
sociate such grandoise terms 
as "fredom of the press" and 
"the American system" with 
the paper that, more often 
than not, serves as a table 
cloth in the Commons. 

However, the fact of the 
matter is that the Collegian 
is a newspaper, regardless 
of its size or effect. We hold 
as basic tenets all that every 
respectable newspaper in 
this nation does. 

We take this opportunity 
along with every other 
newspaper in this country, 
from the New York Times 
on down, not so much to 
honor ourselves, but rather 
to reaffirm and restate our 
belief in the system of gov- 
ernment which allows us to 
exist.

To The Newspapers of America: 

In these times of great events and decisions, the 
importance of which influence the entire world, 
newspapers play an increasingly important part 
in providing the information free people must have 
to be good citizens. 

Critical examination of the policies and actions of 
our government by its citizens is essential to an 
open society. This primary role of the press 
carries with it the knowledge that with freedom 
comes responsibility* 

No other nation in the world enjoys a press as re* 
sponsive to the needs of freedom as the newspapers 
of our country. Newspapers in the United States 
make a big difference in people's lives, and have 
throughout our history. 

In observing National Newspaper Week we are 
significantly aware that the vigilance of newspapers, 
together with their enormous capacity to inform, en- 
tertain, and provoke thoughtful analysis, is an essen- 
tial ingredient of the framework of our daily lives. 

We are fortunate to have a press which increasingly 
seeks higher standards of responsibility and service.

The Malntenanre Department is not only responsible for the up-

In Defense Of Knotvlege 



by OLEH PAYVLl K 

As the average UMass student 
pursues his goal of acquiring a 
higher education, he has very lit- 
tle time to speculate on how the 
campus is kept in order. Such 
services as construction of side- 
walks, campus lighting, and dor- 
mitory cleaning are taken for 
granted. 

However, to see that such 
campus services, and countless 
others, are performed efficiently, 
is the responsibility of the Uni- 
versity Maintenance Department. 
The nerve center of the Main- 
tenance Department is a two 
story brick building located just 
below Flint Laboratory. 

Six sections or sub-depart- 
ments, each with its own direc- 
tor, comprise the Maintenance 
Department. Mr. Edmund J. 
Ryan, Superintendent of Build- 
ings and Grounds, co-ordinates 
the work of the various sub-de- 
partments. 

First of all, there is the Ad- 
ministrative staff. Under the di- 
rection of Mr. Thomas Quartulli, 
administrative employees process 
and estimate work requests, pro- 



vide clerical services for the de- 
partment, and maintain cost ac- 
counting information. Compiling 
budget information is also a part 
of their task. 

A second sub-department is 
the Custodial Section, under the 
supervision of Mr. Paul Whit- 
man. The responsibility of the 
janitors who comprise this sec- 
tion is to keep clean all dormi- 
tories and buildings on campus. 

Perhaps the sub-department 
with the greatest variety of 
tasks to perform is the Grounds 
and Services Section. Here we 
find the motor pool where state 
vehicles are maintained and re- 
paired by competent mechanics. 
This section also serves as the 
headquarters for the horticul- 
turist and arboriculturist who 
care for the campus landscape. 
Road construction, trucking, and 
snow removal are but few of the 
numerous jobs which Superin- 
tendent of Grounds, Mr. George 
Mellen, has to direct. 

Similarly, Mr Francis Conway, 
Superintendent of the Building

The problem of immorality, as 
it were, exists only in the mind 
of the individual. The four girls 
who took issue with the article 
on sex education on the grounds 
of immorality were merely turn- 
ing the other cheek. Without the 
use of contraceptives there is an 
excellent chance that those 
people indulging in premarital 
sex will contract both pregnancy 
and venerial disease. The ques- 
tion of whether or not there 
should be premarital sex was not 
dealt with because the author 
was dealing with reality; rather 
the issue involved was education 
as to the emotional, psycholo- 
gical and physical implications 
of premarital sex. 

Society holds that while it is 
perfectly acceptable for a man 
to take a woman to bed, it is not 
in keeping with the "rules" of 
society of a woman to go to bed 
with a man. It is not necessary 
to get into a discussion of the 
relative merits and or implica- 
tions of the double standard at 
this time but rather to concern 
ourselves with its application 
today, in real life, and here on 



the college campus. 

By indulging in premarital 
sex, man is gratifying a basic 
and primordial urge. (The ques- 
tion of right or wrong must be 
left by the wayside this can be 
determined only by the indivi- 
duals involved- it is a matter of 
personal values and no one can 
expect to impose his values on 
the rest of humanity). 

Again the problem of know- 
ledge arises. Any male is free to 
learn from the experiences of his 
confreres because sexual rela- 
tions are discussed openly and 
with a great deal of pride among 
the male population. The situa- 
tion is precisely opposite for 
females; a woman rarely admits 
to having had sexual relations 
much less discuss them at 
length. A woman will go to a 
man for information because she 
knows, or feels that, another 
woman would condemn her. 

Thus, the cry again goes out 
for more information. With a 
knowledge and understanding of 
premarital sex the woman is 
letter equipped to handle the 
situation and possibly avoid get- 
ting "caught." 



The Folk Scene 

by BOB WEBER 

The latest development in the folk idiom is the revival of jug 
bands. For those of you who don't know what a jug band is, as I 
didn't until this summer, a few words of explanation are needed 

here. 

The jug band consists of guitar, washtub bass, kazoo, banjo, 
washboard and empty jugs somewhat akin to Snuffy Smith's corn 
squeezin' jug. The type of music played by these bands has been 
categorized as "Ragtime." Some range from "Walk Right In" to 

"Bill Bailey." 

The leader of the current jug band revival is Jim Kweskin of 
Boston. Recently appearing at the Bitter End in the Village, Jim 
has recorded an album for Vanguard. 

Folk music is being played on WMUA (91.1 FM) on Saturday 
nights from 10 p.m. to 1 a.m. and on Thursday from midnight to 
2 a.m. It's too bad that WMUA has not taken a realistic approach 
ir. its programming. There is not one folk show during weekday prime 
time (8 p.m. to midnight, according to a recent survey). If you wish 
to hear folk music on WMUA, and are unable to tune in the pro- 
grams, write to WMUA, % Engineering Building, or call 545-2425.

witches. Chikanga describes his 
method in this manner. "I make 
two cuts between the thumb and 
the index finger on each hand. 
Then I put a magic potion called 
'dekani' on the cuts and the 
witch's magic goes away." In 
addition to his potion, Chikanga 
has numerous boxes and bottles 
to trap evil spirits. 

A very Voodoo-like psycholo- 
gical method is practiced at an 
electrical plant in Japan. Em- 
ployees of this plant who are 
ready to blow up at their boss 
are invited to step into the 
Human Control Room to let off 
steam. There they are provided 
with a stuffed effigy of their 
boss, which they may poke or 
punch or ram with a bamboo 

pole.

Do you want to know how to 
chose your champagne? First- 
choice vintage wines available in 
the United States are 1943, 1945, 
1947, 1949, 1952, 1953 and 1955. 
Connoisseurs consider many non- 
vintage wines excellent. Non- 
vintage champagne is a mixture 
of wines from various years and 
is less expensive than the vintage 
variety. 

Maybe scotch is more your 
taste. If it is, bend elbows with 
forty thousand French men who 
seem to be rediscovering "le 
scotch". It all l>egan when a soli- 
tary Paris bar (it loses some- 
thing in the translation) began 
to serve straight scotch. The 
trend caught on and now 
straight scotch has become ft 
status symbol.

She also said one solution 
would be to ebminate the Coun- 
cil's power of approval of ap- 
pointments in order to free the 
governor to make his own ap- 
pointments. Mrs. Benson thinks 
the administration should handle 
the power of approving land 
deals and contracts, and suggest- 
ed creation of an accounting 
commission. 

In rebuttal, Sullivan, refer- 
ring to Mrs. Benson's statement 
comparing the government to a 
large corporation, pointed out 
that a president of a large cor- 
poration has a board of directors. 

Mrs. Benson countered by say- 
ing that "The present governor 
is overchecked and unbalanced

cil "

partment. 

Although errors sometimes oc- 
curr in campus services, such 
discrepencics should not be re- 
garded as signs of antagonism 
toward the student body. The 
major concern of the Mainte- 
nance Department, as well as all 
other departments on campus, 
has been, and will continue to 
be, the welfare of the individual 
student. 



THE MASSACHISKTTS COLLEGIAN. WEDNESDAY. OCTOBER 16, 196S 



Warren Shines As 
Clutch Workhorse 



by JOHN GOODRICH 

Late in the fourth quarter of 
Saturday's game at UConn, the 
Redmen were driving for a score. 
A familiar cry from the stands 
was "Give the ball to Warren." 
Co-capt. Dick Warren did score 
that touchdown plus another one. 
He was also the leading yard 
gainer with 68 yards. 

Warren had been relegated to 
the second team this year and 
got into the game on offense af- 
ter Mike Ross had sustained an 
injury. It is not enough "to say 
that Warren was placed on the 
second team, the story needs 
some explanation. 

In his sophomore year, War- 
ren was a 190 lbs. fullback. At 
the end of the season the coach- 
ing staff decided to try him at a 
halfback position. Warren re- 
ported that fall weighing a little 
over 170. Through a series of 
mishaps, UMass lost its fullbacks 
and Warren had to take over the 
position. Playing at that weight 
is no easy task, but Warren 
managed to come up with the 
vital yardage expected from a 
power driving fullback. 

This year the Redmen have 
two proven teams. Warren plays 
defense on the first team and 
offense on the second. He was 
asked to take the position of 
leadership for this unit and he 
accepted. Yet from the way War- 
ren hits in practice it is obvious 
that he does not want to let any 
one forget that he isn't first line 
material. Only the fact that both 
fullbacks had proven ability, led 
to Warren's being placed on the 
second team. Jack Delaney, back- 
field coach, sums up the con- 
sensus of opinion on the hard 
driving fullback this way, "Dick 
Warren is a symbol of what 
every football player strives to 



be." 

Bits and Pieces: Kick-off spe- 
cialist Milt Morin put three of 
his four kicks Saturday out of 
the endzone . . . The other was 
right down on the goal line . . . 
Jerry Whelchei amazes the fans 
in every game with his sleight 
of hand magic . . . On one fourth 
quarter play, Whelchei faked a 
handoff and stood ten yards be- 
hind the line of scrimmage wait- 
ing unmolested for the pass pat- 
tern to form . . . The Redmen 
are ranked either 3 or 4 in New 
England, depending on which pa- 
per you read . . . Boston papers 
list B.C., Dartmouth, Harvard, 
and UMass . . . A.P. has the 
same order only UMass ahead of 
Harvard . . . Star QB Lloyd 
Welles of U.N.H. has a shoulder 
separation and will miss about 
four games ... He didn't play 
Sat. against Maine and ihe Black 
Bears won, breaking an eleven 
game win streak for the Wild- 
cats . . . Colgate, a team Mass 
beat 25-0 in a scrimmage, is un- 
beaten having downed Cornell 
and Rutgers while tieing B.U. 
. . . Despite the fact Yale won 
over Columbia 19-7, star QB 
Archie Roberts got his usual 
rave notices . . . From all the 
good words about him, it would 
appear that he is a one man 
team and can do no wrong . . . 

UMass representative on the 
ECAC team of the week is tackle 
Paul Graham . . . Despite the 
fact that UMass has one of the 
leading rushing defenses in the 
country, you won't find it men- 
tioned in the major college statis- 
tics ... It seems that Redmen 
don't play enough major schools 

to qualify T. . A team must play 

five to be considered a major 

school and as of yet they do not 

meet that NCAA standard.

Basketball Hopefuls Fight

Does a man really take unfair advantage of women 
when he uses Mennen Skin Bracer? 

All depends on why he uses it. 

Most men simply think Menthol-Iced Skin Bracer is the best 
after-shave lotion around. Because it cools rather than burns . 
Because it helps heal shaving nicks and scrapes. Because it 
helps prevent blemishes. 

So who can blame them if Bracer's crisp, long-lasting aroma 
just happens to affect women so remarkably? 

Of course, some men may use Mennen Skin Bracer because 
of this effect. ~

action at the WPE yesterday 
afternoon. The floor in the Cage

thus the reason for using the 
Women's Phys Ed. 

Six lettermen were among the 
nineteen candidates who re- 
ported to new UMass basketball 
coach Johnny Orr for the initial 
session Tuesday afternoon. 

Orr, former Wisconsin top as- 
sistant, put the Redmen through 
a brisk workout. He was aided 
by assistant coaches Jack Lea- 
man and Vince Eldred. The Red- 
man mentor stated he plans to 
use a fast-break offense and a 
pressing man-to-man defense. 

Senior lettermen Pete Bern- 
ard 5'8" (Brockton), Rodger 
Twitchell, 6'6" (Westfleld. N.J.), 
Mike Johnson, 6'7" (Quincy) and 
Dan Laakso, 6'4" (Norwood), 
and juniors Charlie O'Rourke, 
67" (Hadley) and Charlie Kings- 
ton, 5'11" (Springfield) form the 
veteran nucleus from last win- 
ter's team. Two lettermen failed 
to report — junior John Reynolds, 
6'4". (Canton) for personal rea- 
sons and junior Clarence Hills, 
6T r (Washington, D.C.) who is 
out of school this semester for 
medical reasons. 

Ofcher candidates are:- senior 
Elliot Gventer, 6'5" (Maiden), 
juniors Tom Ryan 6'2" (Pleasant- 
ville, N.Y.), Jim Painten, 6'5" 
(Quincy), and Karl Kamena, 6'2" 
(Teaneck, N.J.). Promising 
sophomores include: Dick Ben- 
jamin, 6'5" (Greenfield). Jeff 
Boyle, 6*6" (Hatfield) Ed Dris- 
coll, 6'2" (Whittinsville>, Tim 
Edwards, 6'4" (Duquesne, Pa.) 
Craig Farnsworth 6* (Altamont, 
N.Y.), Jack Forst, 6'4" (Union, 
N.J.), Paul Gullicksen, 6'4" 
(Quincy), Steve Bonds 6*3" 
(Washington, DC), and Ken 
Rowe, 6' (Milton). 

Orr stated that all positions 
are wide open and that he plans 

to experiment with the squad un- 
til he finds the right combination

for his offenses and defenses. The 
veterans will be hard pressed by 
several newcomers, especially 
sophs Tim Edwards and Steve 
Bonds and junior Jim Painten. 

Edwards led the frosh with 20 
points and 15 rebounds per 
game. Bonds was a frosh star 
two years ago and Painten 
missed last season with a thigh 
injury. 

Top Redmen reporting was 
Twitchell. The New Jersey jump- 
ing-jack, with the soft touch on 
his shots, could end the season 
as the all time UMass high 
scorer and rebounder. He has 
scored 847 points in two varsity 
seasons and needs 411 for a new 
Redman record. He holds Mas- 
sachusetts records for the most 
points scored by a soph, most by 
a junior, most rebounds in one 
year, best rebound average and 
best field goal percentage for one 
year. Twitchell has been All - 
Yankee Conference twice, and 
the jolly Rodger led the league 
in scoring last winter with a 22.6 
average. He was also first team 
All New England on the Basket- 
ball Coaches Association poll. In 
48 varsity games he has scored 
20. or more points 18 times and 
has been in double figures 43 
times. 

Orr expects Johnson, Bernard 
and O'Rourke all to be valuable 
performers this year. Johnson 
was rated last years most im- 
proved Redman as he averaged 
9 points and 10 rebounds per 
game. Bernard had an off-year 
last year scoring 213 points com- 
pared to his soph total of 296, 
but Pete has the hustle and de- 
sire to bounce back. O'Rourke 
averaged 8 points and 8 rebounds 
aT"a soph and had single game 
high of 24 rebounds. 

So while the football team is 
half-way through a successful 
season, the basketball team be- 
gins to work for its upcoming 
season.

THE MASSACHUSETTS COLLEGIAN, WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 16. 1963 



Women Do Well At 
Tennis Tournament 



by HELEN FORSBERG '65 

The Women's Tennis Team 
made a fine showing in the Wom- 
en's Eastern Intercollegiate Ten- 
nis Tournament at Forest Hills, 
New York this past week-end. 
The team captured the distinc- 
tion of being the only school out 
of 46 participating to have all its 
players reach the quarter-finals. 

In the first round of play Carol 
Woodcock '66 tok an easy 6-1, 
6-0 victory from C.W. Post Col- 
lege. Long Island. The doubles 
team of Helen Forsberg '65 and 
Nancy Smolen '67 also had an 
easy match defeating the Uni- 
versity of Bridgeport 6-1, 6-2. 
Rosemary Connelly '66 ran into 
formidable competition and bat- 
tled through a three set mara- 
thon match to beat Colby Col- 
lege 10-12. 6-2. 7-5. 

The second round gave Rose- 
rrtary a little rest as she trounced 
Bryn Mawr 6-2. 6-3. The other 
players ran into rough going as 
Carol Woodcock fought to a 6-4, 
1-6. 6-2 victory over Hunter Col- 
lege, N.Y. Helen Forsberg and 
Nancy Smolen also pulled a sur- 
prise win over favored Skidmore 
College in a 6-4. 5-7, 6-3 duel. 

In the third round Rosemary 
Connelly also pulled an upset 
victory over a favored Middle- 
bury player 7-5. 6-3, and earned 
the nickname "scrapper' for her- 
self. Carol Woodcock ran into 
an old rival from the University 



of Rhode Island and defeated her 
7-5, 6-3. 

Due to an unfortunate ar- 
rangement of the draw sheet the 
quarter-finals saw Carol and 
Rosemary pitted against each 
other. In a match where loyalties 
were much divided Carol Wood- 
cock won 8-6, 6-2. The doubles 
team ran into stiff competition in 
the quarters and went down to 
defeat to a strong Bennett Junior 
College team from Milbrook, 
N.Y. 

The semi-finals found Carol 
Woodcock up against an old 
friend and former doubles part- 
ner, Roberta Zimman from 
Bouve, Tufts, who was seeded 
second in the tournament Ro- 
berta defeated Carol 6-3, 6-1 
went on to win the tournament. 

The tournament is held an- 
nually at the West Side Tennis 
Club with schools from Wash- 
ington, D.C. to Maine participat- 
ing. Entrance is limited to two 
singles players and one doubles 
team due to the large number 
of colleges participating. The 
Women's Athletic Association 
sponsored and financed the three 
and one-half day trip. The four 
players were accompanied by 
Shirley Lord team manager, 
who proved invaluable to the 
team with her assistance, and 
the team coach, Miss Kilby. Miss 
Kilby is here on a one year leave 
from Western Washington State 
College. 



Redmen Booters Bow 
As Leete Stands Out 



by SCOTT FREEPLAND 

The Redmen Booters were de- 
feated 9-4 by the men of UConn 
in a game which may decide the 
fate of the varsity soccer team 
for the rest of the season. 

Redman Pat McDevitt scored 
one. while Dick Leete scored 
three in an exceptional show of 
ability and stamina. However, 
both McDevitt and Leete were 
added, along with goalie Stuart 
to the injured list. With six of 
the eleven starters on the injured 
list the prospects for an already 
dismal season are not promising. 
The spirit and fight which the 
Booters have shown in the last 
five games cannot be sustained 
under game conditions without 
the added depth and ability of 
those on the injured list. 



Today's game with Worcester 
Tech will tell a lot about the 
Redmen Booters" chances for 
Saturday's Homecoming game 
against URL A win today is a 
good indication of a win Satur- 
day, a loss will mean that the 
injury count is so high so as to 
be decisive in the remaining sea- 
son's play. 

Freshman soccer remains the 
bright spot on the soccer scene. 
The Little Redmen booters 
downed Nathaniel Hawthorne 9-1 
last Friday. The first line of 
Garstary. Johnson. Ganius, ac- 
counted for most of the goals 
with five being scored in the first 
half. 

The Frosh face Amherst in 
their first real test Saturday at 
1:30 here at the University.

Collegian Picks Pro 
Football Winners 



by RALPH PROLMAN 

This is the seventh week of 
the pro football season and so 
far it has been a season of big 
surprises and disappointments. 
The two most surprising teams 
have been the Cleveland Browns 
of the N.F.L., and the New York 
Jets of the A.F.L. The biggest 
disappointments have been the 
Buffalo Bills in the A.F.L. and 
the Detroit Lions and the Dallas 
Cowboys of the N.F.L. Now lets 
take a look at the games of this 
weekend. 

In the A.F.L.: Denver at Bos- 
ton- The Patriots should manage 
to make it two wins in a row at 
friendly Fenway Park, as a 
healthy Babe Parilli should be 
too much for the Denver defense 
to hold. The Broncos will be hurt 
by the probable absence of John 
MeCormick. who twisted his 
knee last week against Houston. 

Buffalo at Houston— A healthy 
Cookie Gilchrist and a good 
showing by Jack Kemp should 
help the Bills down the Oilers. 

Snn Diego at Kansas City— A 
virtual tossup but I pick the 
Chargers over the Chiefs. 

New York at Oakland -The 
surprising Jets should make the 
Raiders their forth victims. 

In the N.F.L.: Dallas at New 
York Tom Landry, formerly the 
Giants defensive coach, takes his 
Cowboys into New York looking 



for his second straight upset vic- 
tory. The old man of the Giant's, 
Y. A. Tittle, should ruin Landry's 
day, as he should manage to pick 
the inexperienced Cowboy sec- 
ondary to pieces. 

Green Bay at St. Louis — The 
powerful Packers should manage 
to hand the surprising Cardinals 
their second loss of the year. 

Washington at Pittsburgh — 
Pittsburgh should bounce back 
from last weeks loss to beat the 
Redskins. 

Baltimore at Detroit— In what 
should be a close game, I pick 
the Lions over the Colts. 

Philadelphia at Cleveland— The 
high powered Browns offense 
should roll up a big score against 
a weak Philadelphia defense. 

Chicago at San Francisco — The 
Bears should hand the weak 
49ers their sixth loss in a row. 

Minnesota at Los Angeles — 
The Minnesota Vikings should 
give the helpless Rams their 
sixth consecutive defeat. 

WE GOOFED 

Due to an editorial error in 
last Monday's paper, Phil Van- 
dersea. who did not play in the 
UConn game because of an in- 
jury, was credited with doing the 
punting so capably handled by 
Terry Swanson. 

We extend our apologies to 
both men for any embarrassment 
caused by the story or accom-

Brouillet Vs. 
Keefe; UM 
Vs. C.Conn 

by GENE COLBURN 

Bob Brouillet will put his un- 
defeated record squarely on the 
line Saturday when the Varsity 
Cross Country Team travels to 
Central Connecticut College. Al- 
though Central Conn, does not 
have a particularly strong team, 
they do have Jim Keefe. Keefe 
has won the New England 
Championships handily for the 
last two years, and he set a 
course record each time. He has 
yet to lose in a collegiate cross 
country race, and last summer 
Keefe was a member of the U.S. 
track team that went to Russia. 

"Digger" has yet to come close 
to Keefe, but then, nobody else 
has either. This Saturday could 
very well see a reversal of form 
though. Brouillet has been run- 
ning better that he has ever 
been, and Keefe is rumored to 
not be in top shape. He will have 
to be in top shape to beat Bob. 

Outside of the race for first, 
the outcome of the meet does not 
appear to be too doubtful. The 
Redmen's strength and depth 
should be too much for the Conn. 
Runners. Tom Panke is showing 
a vast amount of improvement 
in practice, and he will be a big 
asset in helping the top five run- 
ners run closer together. Bob 
Larson and Al McPhail, the 
team's sixth and seventh men, 
have been hamjiercd by not l>e- 
ing able to practice with the 
tram on same days due to late 
classs. If these boys improve 
enough though, it ought to give 
the Redmen a good solid team.

School 
of the 

Silent Signals 



The football huddle was invented at Gallaudet 
in 1 880 out of necessity, for these boys and their 
forerunners use only sign language, lip read- 
ing and writing to convey messages and to 
"hear." Photos by Three Lions 



GALLAUDET students literally have 
a college education at their fingertips. 
Sign language is the principal means 
of communication at Gallaudet Col- 
lege, Washington, D. C. — the only col- 
lege in the world for the deaf. 

Founded in 1864, Gallaudet draws 
the bulk of its students from top grad- 
uates of state schools for the deaf. 

Gallaudet students roam through 
studies from Aristotle to zoology, and 
they enjoy a full round of activities 
and athletics. Why a special college 
for the deaf? The blind can attend any 
college because they can hear lectures, 
engage in class discussions, have texts 
read to them. But deaf students de- 
pendent on sign language can get noth- 
ing from lectures or discussions. 








Wrestling is a popular Gallaudet sport. When in 
an enclosed hall, cheering of visiting students 
may be heard by the athletes through floor 
vibrations. Gallaudet has enrollment of several 
hundred students. 



Because students cannot hear bells, they do not 
exist in dorms. A plunger is used to raise and 
let drop a metal ball concealed within walls. 
Impact is transmitted to student's feet through 
floor boards. Continued overleaf 



School of the 
Silent Signals 




Powerful earphones aid students who have some 
hearing ability. For such students, the college 
has telephones with amplified receivers. Gal- 
laudet attracts students from many foreign 
countries as well as U. S. 




Students use sign language exclusively when 
alone. Attempt to use only lip-reading has been 
abandoned as being frustrating, incomplete. 
Many sounds look alike, and some have no 
noticeable lip formation. 




At college prom dancers "hear" the music 
through their feet. Floorboards of enclosed 
spaces transmit sounds. Leaning against the 
juke box is another way deaf students can dig 
the phonograph's beat.

'. . .bring wisdom 



With the opening of a new academic 
year, these lines on college life are well 
worth reading by students and teachers 
alike. They are written by England 's 
famed Poet Laureate, John Masefield. 

THERE ARE FEW earthly things 
more beautiful than a University. It 
is a place where those who hate igno- 
rance may strive to make others see; 
where seekers and learners alike, 
banded together in the search for 
knowledge, will honor thought in all 
its finer ways, will welcome thinkers 
in distress or in exile, will uphold ever 
the dignity of thought and learning and 
will exact standards in these things. 

They give to the young in their im- 
pressionable years the bond of lofty 
purpose shared, of a great corporate 
life whose links will not be loosed un- 
til they die. They give young people 



into human 
affairs' 



that close companionship for which 
youth longs, and that chance of the 
endless discussion of themes which are 
endless — without which youth would 
seem a waste of time. 

There are few earthly things more 
splendid than a University. In these 
days of broken frontiers and collaps- 
ing values — when every future looks 
somewhat grim, and every ancient 
foothold has become something of a 
quagmire, wherever a University- 
stands, it stands and shines; wherever 
it exists, the free minds of men, urged 
on to full and fair inquiry, may still 
bring wisdom into human affairs.

Fashion 



Care-Free Knits 



on European Jaunt 



A JET-JAUNT to Switzerland for 20 college girls re- 
cently provided a rugged test for some of the new smart 
American knits that are taking off in all fashion directions. 

For six days the coeds traveled smartly and easily in 
creative knit fashions of Du Pont "Orion" acrylic fiber. 

Caught in a summer blizzard high on the Jungfrau, 
they snuggled into handsome ski-look sweaters made of 
Orion" or of "Orion Sayelle" bi-component acrylic. On 
planes, trains and while sight-seeing, the girls looked right 
(not a wrinkle in sight) and felt right in knits that will 
be first choice for class and campus this fall.

Your Future 



Careers 



in 
Magazines 



MAGAZINES are big business in 
this nation, and magazines may offer 
you a satisfying career. 

How big is the magazine business? 
Well, there are hundreds of consumer 
magazines in the country, some of 
which number their readers in the 
tens of millions. There are more than 
2,500 trade, industrial, farm and fra- 



ternal magazines. Then add some- 
where between 6,000 and 10,000 "house 
organs" — publications issued by firms 
to tell their story to their employees 
and the public. Total magazine read- 
ership is around half a billion persons. 

In the consumer magazine field 
alone, the annual gross exceeds one 
billion dollars. These newsstand maga- 
zines employ more than 40,000 staff 
people — not to mention papermakers, 
printers, distributors, etc. If you toss 
in trade journals and house organs, 
you do have big business! 

Magazines require a wide range of 
skills. The work is exciting, satisfying 
and offers financial rewards to boot. 
In the consumer field, for instance, 
salaried employees average better than 



$7,000 with a salary range of perhaps 
$60,000 to $3,600. 

Are jobs available? Yes. In fact, 
the industry has recently moved to re- 
cruit good people to the field. Begin- 
ners probably do best in the trade and 
house organ field. One midwestern 
journalism school reports "a goodly 
number" of jobs available with a be- 
ginning range of about $90 to $110, 
the average perhaps $95. English ma- 
jors, liberal arts and commercial art 
grads also can crack the field.

Those 'Little Black Boxes' 



"LITTLE BLACK BOXES," so often 
discussed in connection with a nuclear 
test ban, may turn out to be "big gray 
boxes." 

Geophysicists at St. Louis Uni- 
versity have been busy this summer 
translating seismological data that 
may help detect and pinpoint under- 
ground nuclear explosions. 

The Rev. William V. Stauder, SJ., 
director of the St. Louis University 
seismograph station, and three re- 
search assistants are poring over thou- 
sands of feet of seismograph tapes at 
the University's De Pere Hail. Infor- 
mation for the study was gathered this 
summer in surveys across Missouri. 

During the field work, recording 
trucks, each with eight seismographs, 
were strung along a 60-mile line to 
record the travel time of the seismic 
waves set up by explosions. 

Speed of the seismic waves is used 
by the geophysicists to determine 
the composition and thickness of the 
earth's crust. This information about 
the crustal structure can be used to 
distinguish between natural and man 
made seismic disturbances. 

The work is part of the Vela Uni- 
form program of the U.S. Department 



of Defense. The study is aimed at im- 
proving methods for detecting, locating 
and identifying underground nuclear 
blasts, which could be used as inspec- 
tion tools in the event of a complete 
atom test ban. 




Thousands of feet of seismographic tapes record 
shock waves sent by man made explosions in 
Missouri this summer. Processed data will in- 
dicate velocity of the seismic waves and thick- 
ness of the earth's crust. UPI photos. Copy

COLLEGIATE DIGEST / October 1963/9

Cambridge University, 50 miles from London, is 
composed of 20 separate colleges. Above is the 
main gatehouse and Chapel of King's College. 



WHEN I SAY that there are times 
when I find myself almost preferring 
Cambridge to Oxford, don't get me 
wrong. I am a graduate of the Uni- 
versity of Oxford and I am naturally 
proud of that distinction. But Oxford 
is now a large and populous city, and 
I often enjoy the contrast afforded by 
Cambridge, which still manages to 
retain much of the character of a 
country market-town. 

Comparisons, however, between 
two such remarkable places are point- 
less, and everyone who can should 
visit both Universities, which are 
graced by some of the loveliest medi- 
eval and Renaissance buildings in 
Europe. 

Luckily there is a bus service which 
links them. There is also a train serv- 
ice, though this entails a change at 
Bletchley (see map on page 11). The 
bus follows a more or less direct road, 
by way of Bicester, Stony Stratford 
and Bedford, but I will suggest some 
diversions for those who go by car. 

THE ROAD from Oxford to Bicester 
is fast and straight, with little to catch 
the eye except Weston Manor, once a 
medieval moated grange (now a hotel) 

10 / October 1 963 / COLLEGIATE DIGEST 



Completed in 1513, the Chapel is considered 
one of the great Gothic buildings of Europe. 
The river Cam flows behind the Chapel. 



in which Prince Rupert of the Rhine, 
during the Civil War of the 17th cen- 
tury, found sanctuary from his enemy 
Fairfax, who slept in the next room. 
The Prince escaped, disguised as a 
dairymaid. 

Bicester is a stonebuilt market- 
town, traditionally famous as a fox- 
hunting center. 

Buckingham used to be the county 
town of Buckinghamshire. That dis- 




Time-mellowed stone archwoys frame this quiet 
scene at Oxford University. Oxford, also about 
50 miles from London, dotes back 800 years. 



From 
Oxford 

to 
Cambridge 

Condensed from S. P. B. Mais 

tinction is now held by Aylesbury, 17 
miles to the southeast. During the Civ- 
il War Aylesbury was held by the 
Roundheads, in spite of the fact that 
Sir Edward Verney, who represented 
the town in Parliament, was a Royal- 
ist. Other well-known Aylesbury rep- 
resentatives have been John Wilkes 
and Benjamin Disraeli. 

From Buckingham the bus contin- 
ues by way of Stony Stratford, Wol- 
verton and Newport Pagnell — just to 
the north of which is Olney, once the 
home of the poet William Cowper. On 
Shrove Tuesday each year the house- 
wives of Olney compete with those of 
Liberal, Kansas, in a Transatlantic 
pancake race. 

IF YOU HAVE a car, however, I 
would suggest taking the road via 
Bletchley to the little town of Wo- 
burn, which clusters outside the gates 
of the great zoological park surround- 
ing Woburn Abbey. A public road 
crosses the park, and gives good views 
both of the animals and of the Abbey 
itself, the stately ancestral home of the 
Dukes of Bedford. 

By a coincidence, another fine zo- 
ological park is only ten miles away 
to the south. This is the Zoological 
Society's extensive park at Whipsnade 
in the Chiltern Hills. 

From Woburn we drive through 
the pleasant Bedfordshire countryside, 
by way of Ampthill (where the church 
contains a monument to the first Brit- 
ish governor of New York), to Bed- 
ford, the county town, on the river 
Ouse. There is a fine bronze statue 
here to John Bunyan (1628-88), who 
was imprisoned at Bedford for his pub- 
Continued on page 1 1 







lie preaching of nonconformity. 
It was while he was incarcer- 
ated in Bedford prison that he 
embarked on his Pilgrim's Prog- 
ress and Grace Abounding. 

We now enter a flat agricul- 
tural area, and in a few miles 
we join the Great North Road 
(Al) which links London and 
Edinburgh. St. Neots, where we 
we enter Huntingdonshire, was 
named after a dwarf possessed 
of the miraculous power of be- 
ing able to create an inexhaust- 
ible supply of fish. 

CAMBRIDGE lies due east of 
here, but I recommend the short 
detour to the north (continuing 
along the Great North Road) 
to visit two of the most inter- 
esting towns in Huntingdonshire 
— Huntingdon itself and St. Ives. 

From St. Ives the road runs 
south to Eltisley. 

A little farther on, close to 
the Caxton Gibbet Hotel, an an- 
cient gibbet still stands at the 
crossroads, reminding us of the 
peremptory fate meted out to

highwaymen in the old days. At 
Madingley we have our first 
view of Cambridge straight 
ahead, and we may well want 
to pause here in order to inspect 
the beautiful new American 
cemetery. 

AT CAMBRIDGE even the 
most prejudiced Oxford man 
could not fail to concede the 
many distinctions enjoyed by 
the sister University city, apart 
from its having a quieter and 
more leisurely aspect — for ex- 
ample, the fact that the river 
Cam flows below the walls of 
several of the colleges and that 
King's College Chapel, built in 
the reign of Henry VI, tran- 
scends in architectural perfec- 
tion almost any other edifice in 
the country. 

There is not the space to de- 
scribe all the architectural glor- 
ies of Cambridge, any more than 
I could of Oxford, but let me 
end with some of the names of 
great men who studied there 
and perhaps found their great- 
ness in its cloistered calm: Mil- 
ton, Byron, Tennyson, Dryden. 
Francis Bacon, Isaac Newton,. 
Macaulay, Samuel Pepys, Spen- 
ser, Thomas Gray, Christopher 
Marlowe, Rupert Brooke, Oli- 
ver Cromwell, Robert Herrick 
and Wordsworth. 

So many of these are poets 
that Cambridge might truly be 
described as "a nest of singing 
birds."

tal, fiddle tunes, to the short and funny vocals, the 
protest songs, ballads and sacred songs. 

The Club's first release, "PG&MS" (for Philo 
Glee and Mandolin Society), has already sold 700 
copies — pretty good for a record of its type. 

Both albums boast booklets that contain com- 
plete background material on the music, research 
that is ladled out with scholarly loving care. 

The LPs in both the instrumental and vocal se- 
lections have honest, direct performances that catch 
the flavor of the music in America's roots.

Collegiate Digest Visits 
Catbridge U 



WHEN famed animal photographer 
Walter Chandoha recently visited the 
campus of Catbridge University, he 
found it to be pretty much like any 
other of the nation's colleges. 

The graduate students were madly 
working on their PurrHDs. Coeds 
were making catty remarks about the 
new fur coats on campus. Vocalists 
were practicing for the school's famed 
alley capella choir. 

Registration was understandably 
low in the Music School's courses in 
violin. Hot dogs elicited hisses, as us- 
ual, in the dorm dining rooms. And 
students, clad in their cat's pajamas, 
held bull sessions far into the night. 

Profs sharpened their claws before 
grading a set of papers. The Dean of 
Students office, of course, cleverly 
placed the women's dorms on the far 
side of the campus from the tomcats. 

Now dig a few of these cats. 




Two freshmen stare in awe at the main build- 
ing, Felix Felidae Mall. Catbridge has a cosmo- 
politan student body with scholars from Persia, 



Siam, Malta, the Isle of Man and many of the 
best alleys in the U. S. A.
